Do you have any final reflections or comments?
Tech, with its unique business models, should get access to the same programs as other small businesses. This sector has been the biggest driver of economic growth and the damage to long term innovation goals of the nation will be severe if many companies go down under and innovation remains controlled by large tech companies from the US with large cash reserves (ie. Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, Google). Regulatory capture will continue.
