IEDC Annual Conference 2016

By July 27, 2016Blog


There is a vast global market filled with untapped potential. Foreign-born entrepreneurs have great ideas, but struggle with raising capital, excess regulations, and sluggish local economies. Bringing those ideas to the U.S. has enormous potential to benefit both these businesses and the communities they relocate to.

Our session will provide an inside look into the process of attracting foreign entrepreneurs from a variety of perspectives:

•    A U.S. accelerator program

according to Forbes, over 40% of fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or

•    Their international partners

•    The foreign entrepreneurs themselves

The panel will discuss not only the key issues at stake but also share success stories and give practical advice on how to embark on a similar endeavor.

According to Forbes, over 40% of Fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or their children; one does not need to look further than Elon Musk or Sergei Brin, to understand how important these foreign entrepreneurs can be. Come get an inside look at a unique program designed to bring promising international startups to America, and learn how you can do the same in your community.
