Brunch and Business: Dreams Do Come True – The Successful Journey of an Immigrant Entrepreneur

Immigrants embrace entrepreneurship. According to a 2017 CNN Money article, “…about 40% of Fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or their children. Together they have annual revenue of $4.8 trillion and employ 18.9 million people around the world, according to a study last year by New American Economy.” 

Join us at our upcoming Brunch and Business event where we will introduce you to three highly-successful Arlington entrepreneurs from around the world. Listen to their stories and engage with these business owners as they discuss their entrepreneurial journey and recall how they launched and grew their businesses here in Arlington.
