Creating Entrepreneur Pathways: Making Sure the White House Hears from the Tech Community
FWD.us has been working hard to make sure that the White House hears from you: last November, President Obama promised to take action that will make it easier for high-skilled immigrants and entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses here in the U.S., boosting our economy and creating American jobs. As part of the Entrepreneur Pathways Program, we’ve been collecting suggestions from members of the tech community to help ensure that these proposed programs are rolled out in a way that truly meets the tech community’s needs.
We’ve hosted calls and roundtables with members of the tech community, and received meaningful feedback from entrepreneurs across the country. We’ll be sending these suggestions in to policymakers at the White House in just a few days, and we want to make sure as many members of the tech community as possible can help create solutions by passing along valuable ideas and insight.
What Happens Next?
Once recommendations are submitted, the White House will compile the suggestions and release their policy proposal for a period of public comment, where members of the tech community will have another chance to weigh in. We’ll make sure to keep you posted as that key piece of the Entrepreneur Pathways Program moves forward.
We hope you’ll take this opportunity to share your experiences and recommendations with White House policymakers. While FWD.us continues working to pass a permanent legislative solution that will finally fix our broken immigration system, the tech community has a key role to play in helping to craft policy solutions that will make it easier for entrepreneurs to do what they do best – create jobs, grow our economy, and innovate.
