The panel is scheduled to run for about an hour.

Following a break for lunch, the live stream will pick back up at 12:15 p.m. with U.S. Senator Jerry Moran discussing entrepreneurship and public policy. Sen. Moran has championed entrepreneurship and innovation, including through the introduction of Startup Act 2.0, a bipartisan piece of legislation to jumpstart the economy and create jobs through a dose of entrepreneurship, innovation and free markets.
