The US has always been a destination for the best and brightest tech talent from around the world. Over 40% of Fortune 500 companies were started by immigrants. Without international entrepreneurs, we wouldn't have companies like Dropbox, Google, Uber, Tesla, eBay, PayPal, Instagram, and AT&T.
But until now, there has never been an immigration pathway specifically for startup founders. Join our panelist of startup ecosystem leaders to hear about the newly announced International Entrepreneur Rule. With 25% of startups in Austin reporting at least 1 foreign-born co-founder, this new rule helps the startup scene draw global talent and capital.
Come hear about eligibility requirements, get the insider story on how the industry came together to pass this rule, and learn about the continued need for Congress to pass immigration policies that strengthen the tech industry.Austin Startup Week is supported in part by Capital Factory, Techstars, Galvanize, and Janik Vinnakota LLP.
