No Recovery Without Entrepreneurs’ Help?

with 2 comments

According to HBP statistics, quoting the Kauffman Foundation, entrepreneurs have been key drivers of economic recovery in past recessions. In fact, since 1980, companies less than five years old have accounted for virtually all net new-job creation in the U.S.

Considering myself as an entrepreneur I read the Entrepreneurs’ Gloom Contradicts Wall Street Optimism.

The following statistic tidbit got my attention:

I found out that many successful, talented entrepreneur that are currently in the US with  H1 visa are unable to start a business in the US, even if they willing to go through this difficult process.

The vast majority of entrepreneurs think it should be easier to start a business:

Starting a business in the US

Starting a business in the US

For many entrepreneurs, starting a business in THE US, is NOT an option. You don’t need a Nobel Prize in economy to understand why the US economy need to make it easier to H1 visa holders to start a business in the US and help boost economy.
