According to the Center for American Entrepreneurship, nearly half of all Fortune 500 companies were founded by an immigrant or the child of an immigrant.  However, there is no visa specifically for entrepreneurs.  In fact, being an entrepreneur can make obtaining a visa more difficult due to immigration limitations on self-employment.  In the latest episode of the Everyday Immigration Podcast, Miller Mayer immigration attorney David Wilks speaks with Cornell Tech’s Fernando Gomez-Baquero about international entrepreneurship. In the interview, Fernando discusses how he personally overcame the immigration challenges facing entrepreneurs, and is now working with the Cornell Tech Runway Program to help other entrepreneurs overcome the same.
