Immigrants and Entrepreneurship

An Oklahoma newspaper has an interesting article on immigrants and entrepreneurship:


"The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation [http://www.kauffman.org/], a Kansas City, Mo.-based entrepreneurial think tank, says 0.35 percent of immigrants are entrepreneurs compared with 0.28 percent for the native born."

"We are a nation built on immigrants. But there was always a path to the middle class. And that's not so much the case anymore. That's why more immigrants are turning to entrepreneurship. A lot of immigrants see it as the best, if not only, ticket to the American dream."
