This webinar is sponsored by AngelouEconomics..

America's longstanding leadership in innovation has attracted some of the brightest international inventors, technologists, scientists and entrepreneurs to be educated in the U.S. Yet, once training has completed, many of these innovators return home for financial reasons and a lack of entrepreneurial opportunities. Instead of creating companies, jobs, and wealth in America, countless international professionals miss their chance to contribute their expertise.

As the new knowledge economy continues to develop, so does the potential for dynamism, dislocation, and innovation. Collectively, these factors may help the United States fashion a future that reflects tech's best values and virtues. Economic development organizations can expand upon these growing opportunities by supporting international entrepreneurs and associated initiatives in their communities.

Attend this webinar to learn how your community can benefit.

You will hear how to:

• Attract the brightest foreign-born entrepreneurs, which can create thousands of jobs 
• Create an accelerator and invest in entrepreneurship 
• Increase innovation and technology to attract the next generation of young and educated people


Angelos Angelou 
Principal Executive Officer

Angelos Angelou has spent over 30-years in the field of economic development. He has assisted in creating economic and fiscal policies, as well as development tools to attract the brightest and most creative people and their companies to America. He has created and executed strategic plans that have led to the creation of several hundred thousand direct and indirect jobs in America. Understanding that many of these jobs would have been created in foreign lands, Angelos created the International Accelerator in Austin, Texas. This is the first accelerator in America that solely focuses on bringing foreign-born entrepreneurs to the U.S.
