August 4, 2016: Startup Day Across America

Global GEIR Summit

DRIVING GROWTH THROUGH INCLUSIVE ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Unshackled Ventures, the innovative angel fund that extends the entrepreneurship opportunity to everyone in the U.S., including immigrants, teamed up with Congressman Joaquin Castro to pen an Op-Ed highlighting the challenges faced by immigrant entrepreneurs and proposing some solutions. The Op-Ed is featured on The Huffington Post and Recode.

#STARTUPDAY

They’ve also launched the hashtag #StartupDay to help further the conversation about immigrants and entrepreneurship. Startup Day is a “time to celebrate entrepreneurs and the jobs they create. It’s also an opportunity to reflect on the challenges that our entrepreneurs face and explore solutions to allow the best and brightest minds to succeed.”

SUPPORTING ENTREPRENEURIAL POTENTIAL

USAIE shares Unshackled’s belief that there is “huge opportunity to unlock entrepreneurial potential if we do a better job of ensuring that all entrepreneurs are set up to succeed in America.” We offer immigration law consultations and targeted presentations to individuals, companies, and incubators.
