Starting-Up in America 1

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]merica, the land of the free, home of the brave, and destination of choice for many looking to spread their entrepreneurial wings…

For a country that was essentially started by immigrants, today’s US borders are less open (for many obvious reasons which is another topic for another day). However in this context I’m talking about entrepreneurs looking to gain a visa to come work in the United States.

Check out this film entitled, Starting-Up in America. This documentary film by Tarik Ansari and Basil Glew-Galloway talks about the issues faced by international Silicon Valley Entrepreneurs with US Immigration. It’s an interesting look at the overall issue of immigration, citizenship, and economics.

For more background on this film and check out the site, follow them on Twitter or catch them on Facebook.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments below.

Shouts out to my colleague Hermione Way from The Next Web for pointing me to this video.
