Require a fee for filing a "Paragraph 4" challenge

Problem: In the world of pharmaceutical patents, it costs the patent originator money for R&D and patent application. After a patent is awarded, a generic manufacturer may challenge the patent using a "Paragraph 4" challenge, and doesn't have to pay any fee at all. There is, therefore, no cost for a generic manufacturer to challenge a legitimately awarded patent, and a big hidden cost to the originator (who has to plan ...more »

Make journals, data, business publications accessible.

Make a wealth of online journals, news agencies, and other business-related publications accessible to members free of charge, or at least cheap. In college, I had access to all such information, and the cost was rolled into my tuition. A contributing member of the SBA would benefit greatly from access to demographic, geographic data and trend information in their planning stage as well as in their ability to stay ahead ...more »

Data disemination

In my opinion, all industries" data (at all levels - local, regional...) should be generated "real time" and it should be disseminated to all parties(citizens, organizations, companies, start ups...) for free. This is a big task for one organization for large economy and a large geography like ours and and I believe, all universities across the country could collaborate and achieve this.

Incentivize Contract Officers

The Federal Government must streamline it's contracting and contract management process and provide incentives to Contracting officers. There is no incentive for Contracting Officers to work with Small Businesses or Entrepreneurs. By hiring large firms and place a clause in their contract to work with small businesses, it takes the pressure off of the government to work with SBAs.

Distributed local production models where and when possible.

After looking for one product online(a dog house) I found it sells for about $230 (list price) and on sale about $130. Then, I looked for suppliers of dog houses. The same product as far as I can see from the pictures is manufactured in China. If I were buying this product, I would gladly buy it from my carpenter/woodworker neighbor at the same price. I am sure my neighbor would be glad, too, to sell it to me.In fact, ...more »
