Revealing new data aboutimmigrant key founders whoare fueling U.S. technology andengineering companies
This study tracked the educational backgrounds o immigrant entrepreneurswho were key ounders o technology and engineering companies rom1995 to 2005. This study, published in June 2007, was unded by the EwingMarion Kauman Foundation and conducted by Duke University and theUniversity o Caliornia, Berkeley.While the contribution o skilled immigrants to America’s technology andengineering start-ups has been recognized or the past decade as critical tothe emergence o many o America’s most entrepreneurial companies andhuge, new industries, little has been known about the backgrounds o theseimmigrant key ounders.This study is a ollow-up to a previous report that showed that in 25.3percent o technology and engineering companies started in the UnitedStates rom 1995 to 2005, at least one key ounder was oreign-born.Nationwide, these immigrant-ounded companies produced $52 billionin sales and employed 450,000 workers in 2005. The majority o theseimmigrant key ounders came rom India, the United Kingdom, China,Taiwan, Japan, and Germany.
