Immigrant Women Entrepreneurs Europe

We are Women Migrentrepreneurs. Finding our place, making our mark.

Holiday Read: Immigrant, Inc.

This book was delivered over the holidays and was my companion during the brief vacation over at my in-laws. While the focus of the book is on  high-tech start-ups,  the United States and on immigration policies, it was a breath of fresh air to read about positive contributions of immigrants in a country’s economy. The book highlighted the potentials of educated immigrants in creating jobs for locals and their fellow immigrants instead of the widely spread notion that immigrants take jobs from the natives. The stories of the immigrants, coming with nothing, except for their guts, their education, their work ethics and their bright ideas, and coming out leaders in their industries were truly inspirational.

It would be nice to be able to document the great success of immigrant women entrepreneurs here in Europe. This idea is now officially in the bucket list.
