The Policy & Innovation Initiative Mission Statement
Business does not exist in a vacuum. Government policy impacts the structure of the market by which advantage derives. In turn, business may play a role in the formulation of government policy.
This interdependence is particularly important in innovative industries where new business models often conflict with existing regulatory frameworks. Understanding the interplay of policy and innovation is essential for entrepreneurs, investors, and incumbent firms, both small and large, early stage or mature.
The Policy and Innovation Initiative (PII) at Stanford GSB seeks to focus a lens on the intersection and interaction of business and government policy. We will bring together leaders across various sectors to foster collaboration and understanding, and build a knowledge base and expertise that is useful to researchers and practitioners alike.
Led by Graduate School of Business Professor Steve Callander, and housed within the GSB’s Center for Entrepreneurial Studies (CES).
