Coming To America

The Immigration Challenges of Today &

Startup Act of Tomorrow

The New York tech community's political agenda often focuses on net neutrality but immigration reform is just as important. Although 25 percent of successful tech startups over the last decade have been founded or co-founded by immigrants, existing immigration policies make it difficult for foreign-born entrepreneurs to establish their businesses in the US. Come learn about the challenges of immigration policy today and the pending policies of tomorrow, including The Startup Act 2.0. Our stellar speakers include:

Event Agenda
  • 5:30pm: CLE Event (see below)
  • 6:30pm: Arrival & Registration
  • 7:00pm: Fireside chat with Congressional sponsors of The Startup Act 2.0
  • 7:30pm: “Coming To America” Panel Discussion
  • 8:30pm: Cocktail Reception
For Continuing Legal Education Credit
New York Law School is hosting a continuing legal education class, "Immigration Headaches: Why U.S. Immigration Law Hurts Entrepreneurs and Startups" prior to the "Coming To America" from 5-6pm. Join Professor Lenni Benson, Alexis Axelrad (Barst Mukamal & Kleiner and AILA Board of Governors), and Daniel Parisi (Tocci, Goss, Lee, Shipley & Parisi) to learn why the existing immigration law needs reform.
