Immigrant Entrepreneurship – Slowed and possibly Declining

A new Kauffman Foundation study finds that high-tech, immigrant-founded startups nationwide has slipped from 25.3 percent to 24.3 percent since 2005. The drop is even more pronounced in Silicon Valley, where the percentage of immigrant-founded startups declined from 52.4 percent to 43.9 percent.

It is essential that the United States Immigration Policy be modified to create startup visas for these entrepreneurs and expand the number of green cards for skilled foreigners to work in these startups. This is a very important part of the United States economy that we can ill afford to lose.

The book is titled “America’s New Immigrant Entrepreneurs : Then and Now”.
