Not only is Austin one of the fastest growing cities in the country, it is also the startup capital of Texas. This culture of entrepreneurship has been fueled by an influx of immigrant entrepreneurs to the Lone Star state. Immigrants have started more than 30% of new businesses in Texas from 2007 – 2010, according to the Immigration Policy Center.
The Austin FWD.us chapter spearheads our efforts in Texas to pass comprehensive immigration reform and hosts regular events. Attend an upcoming FWDMonthly meeting to learn more about becoming a member!
