A survey of 28,000 companies found that immigrants were key founders in more than a quarter of all the engineering and technology companies set up in the U.S. between 1995 and 2005.The new research–led by Vivek Wadhwa, an executive-in-residence at Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering–and his team had counted $52 billion in annual sales by these immigrant-founded companies.
