StartUP Newcomers by Immigrant Networks
A StatsCan report dated September 2021 on Immigrant and second-generation entrepreneurs in Canada states:
Multiple U.S. studies have concluded that immigrant entrepreneurs represent a major driving force in the technology sector and that immigrants played a disproportionate role in the development of places like Silicon Valley
Recent Canadian research shows that economic class immigrants are more likely to own technology-based companies than Canadian-born business owners, possibly because they are considerably more likely to have a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) university degree.
From Elon Musk, the world’s richest man to the co-founder of Google, immigrant entrepreneurs have through the ages shown their skills in building profitable enterprises.
Seven years ago, a German visitor to Canada decided to build a website to sell snowboards, this went on to eventually becoming a $3B business eclipsing Canada’s RBC on the way! More recently, three student brothers from Iran studying in Canada decided potential students should have more choices and they created Applyboard which is now a $3.2B business.
Such is the opportunity of newcomer youth entrepreneurs.
Now Immigrant Networks partners with StartUP Canada to give newly arrived Newcomers who have the entrepreneurial dream, the opportunity to replicate the previous mentioned successes.
