Immigrant Entrepreneurs from Main Street to the Fort Point

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at 3:00pm to 4:00pm

The Hub, Ideas Stage, Boston's City Hall Plaza

Are we a stronger city and economy because of our historic openness to immigration or should we close the borders and restrict access?

What happens to the economy if we are more restrictive, or more open? What is the impact on jobs, employers and economic growth?

A panel, including Min He, Co-President of MIT Chief 2017, will address why our economy, from Main Street to Fort Point, depends heavily on immigrants, why the implications of restricting immigration are grim, and what more can be done to support immigrant entrepreneurs.
