Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr will speak on “Global Entrepreneurs in Residence: Helping Immigrant Founders Create American Jobs” on October 24, 2017, at the Welcoming Economies (WE) Global Convening 2017 in Syracuse, NY. The Trump Administration’s pause of the proposed International Entrepreneurs Rule to allow an alternative to the startup visa has given new emphasis to the Global Entrepreneurs in Residence (GEIR) program to pair international entrepreneurs with universities to create local businesses and entrepreneurship opportunities. This session will include national experts, as well as the experience of one WE Global member, on how these programs operate, what they bring to a local entrepreneurial ecosystem, and what local communities should consider when contemplating such an endeavor.
