Beyond the Broadcast event on immigration and entrepreneurship

America Abroad Media (AAM) hosted a special Beyond the Broadcast panel discussion on Friday, May 31 at AAM's offices on 19th and K NW Washington, D.C.

A panel of experts discussed issues presented in AAM's May, 2013 America Abroad radio documentary:

Immigration and the Global Talent Search

It's the American dream – move to the United States, start your own business and build a successful life. But, is the U.S. losing the global race for the best and brightest entrepreneurial talent? Our panel will discuss the role immigrant entrepreneurs play in the American economy, as well as what other countries are doing to attract foreign talent and lift themselves out of the global recession.

The discussion was moderated by:

Jonathan Ortmans
President, Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) and Senior Fellow, The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation

Panelists included:

Neil Ruiz
Senior Policy Analyst and Associate Fellow, Metropolitan Policy Program, The Brookings Institution

Edward Alden
Bernard L. Schwartz Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations

Stephan Raes
Economic Minister, Royal Netherlands Embassy
