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:
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:
President, Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) and Senior Fellow, The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation
Senior Policy Analyst and Associate Fellow, Metropolitan Policy Program, The Brookings Institution
Bernard L. Schwartz Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations
Economic Minister, Royal Netherlands Embassy
