Dan Helmer is the descendant of immigrants -- a number of whom launched small businesses after arriving in America. When Dan began his career in business, it was with deep admiration for the grit and courage behind such successful entrepreneurship. Since then, as a strategic adviser to a wide range of American companies, he has improved their efficiency, capacity to innovate, and ability to create new, high-paying jobs. He also worked with these businesses to ensure that manufacturing remained in the United States. As a member of Congress, he will encourage enterprise, foster a smart regulatory environment, and protect consumers.
