Success in the US Market as a Foreign-Born Founder

Date TBA

In the history of American entrepreneurialism, immigrants have started more than half of US companies valued at a billion dollars or more, with that number increasing to 64% when including the children of immigrants. This panel explores the means through which foreign-born founders are able to achieve such marked success in the US startup ecosystem, while also discussing the difficulties often faced by founders upon their arrival to the States.

From visa to investment, attendees of this session should expect to hear from a number of successful foreign-born entrepreneurs as well as industry and economic development experts about the dos and don’ts of coming to the US market, positioning the brand for a new audience, and efficiently scaling growth to secure funding.
