immigrant founders. Of the U.S. venture-backed companies that became publicly traded between 2006 and 2012, 33 percent have at least one immigrant founder. These companies include well-known names such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Zipcar and Tesla Motors. This compares to 20 percent of venture-funded companies with an initial public offering prior to January 1, 2006.

Among the largest employers are Intel, Google, Sanmina, eBay, PAREXEL, and Yahoo!. Immigrant-founded companies that went public since 2006 employ 65,450 people, with annual sales of over $17 billion.

Of those surveyed, thirty-three percent of the entrepreneurs were foreign-born, with top countries of origin being India, the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Israel and Germany. Sixty-one percent of the privately-held immigrant-founded companies held one or more patents.

The survey results indicated that company executives believe America’s immigration system needs to be reformed. Among all private company founders, both native-born and foreign-born, 79 percent believed “The pro
