During the launch of the inaugural Urbanism Summit, held on February 21, 2017 at the Miami Design District, a panel of entrepreneurs and immigration attorneys gathered to discuss the contributions of immigrants to building cities and growing the U.S. economy. Central to the conversation were the benefits of having immigrant talent working alongside American startups and established companies to boost innovation hubs, such as Miami. The attorneys also addressed how the Trump administration’s decisions are affecting both talent acquisition and foreign investments.
The discussion was lead by Ted Hutchinson, Florida Director of FWD.us – a sponsor of the inaugural Urbanism Summit. Panelists included: Johanna Mikkola, Co-founder of Wyncode, Anton Diego, CEO and Founder, Everymundo, Alexander Sjögren, CTO, Yellowpepper, Harry Tapias, Attorney, Loigica, and Michael Harris, Attorney, Harris Law.
