Immigrant Entrepreneurs Update

Recent studies on immigrant entrepreneurs have been updated by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. They report that "... the educational backgrounds of immigrant entrepreneurs who were key founders of technology and engineering companies from 1995 to 2005 shows a strong correlation between educational attainment (particularly in science, technology, engineering and math) and entrepreneurship" and that "53 percent of the immigrant founders of U.S.-based technology and engineering companies completed their highest degrees in U.S. universities".
Demo has a brief summary and comparison to the earlier studies.
