IMPROVED IMMIGRATION LAWS WOULD HELP FOREIGN STUDENT ENTREPRENEURS LAUNCH U.S. COMPANIES, CREATE U.S. JOBS, SAYS KAUFFMAN PAPER

A paper coauthored by the UMKC School of Law professors Tony Luppino and Malika Simmons and IEI Visiting Professor of Entrepreneurship, John Norton was published by the Kauffman Foundation as a Kauffman Paper yesterday. Professor Tony Luppino is also an IEI Entrepreneurship Teaching Fellow. The press release and a link to the paper are accessible at The Kauffman Foundation's website. The press release was also reprinted by Virtual Strategy Magazine. A companion piece by Dane Stangler of the Kauffman Foundation announcing the paper was posted on the Forbes website. The Kansas City Star has also published a news story about this research paper.

The authors currently plan to conduct breakout sessions to discuss this important issue at both the October conference of the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers, in Washington, DC, and the January conference of the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship, in San Francisco, CA, as part of our effort to promote the discipline and practice of entrepreneurship, not only within the Bloch School, UMKC, and locally, but nationally and across borders as well.


The Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the UMKC Bloch School inspires and nurtures future generations of entrepreneurs, and delivers transformational entrepreneurship education and experiences university-wide.

The Henry W. Bloch School of Management develops purposeful, entrepreneurial and innovative leaders to meet changing global demands, and advances knowledge and practice through excellent teaching, scholarship, outreach and service.
