The immigration entrepreneur in your business has an excellent opportunity to make a difference in your community, according to a new report by the Immigrant Entrepreneurship Council.
The Immigrant Enterprises Council (IEC), a non-profit, nonprofit and advocacy organization, released its annual report on immigration entrepreneurship last week, which details the success of immigration entrepreneurs in California.
In a wide-ranging report, the IEC found that the number of entrepreneurs in the state is increasing at a rate of nearly 30 percent.
In the state’s largest county, Orange County, there are more than 400 new immigrant entrepreneurs.
The report found that Orange County is the most innovative in California, with nearly 300 new immigrant founders.
The report noted that Orange is a sanctuary county, meaning that all immigrants in the county are eligible to apply for citizenship.
The IEC’s report also noted that California is on pace to have nearly a million immigrants become citizens.
In Orange County alone, there have been more than 250,000 immigrants becoming citizens since 2015, according the report.
More than 30 percent of these immigrants are entrepreneurs, according.
The county has become a hotbed of entrepreneurship, with more than 60 percent of entrepreneurs from California entering the county in the last five years, according a report released last year by the county.
The average age of these new entrepreneurs is 34 years old, and they’re coming from around the world, said Kristina Foy, the county’s new director of economic development.
The immigrants are also bringing with them an entrepreneurial mindset.
They have a strong entrepreneurial spirit, and that drives them to be a leader, Foy said.
