Workshop at Wright State focuses on supporting immigrant entrepreneurs in Dayton


Supporting Dayton’s immigrant entrepreneurs and preparing young people to compete in the global economy were the focus on a workshop at Wright State University March 14.

The workshop, “Immigrant, Inc.: Building an Ecosystem to Help Immigrant Entrepreneurs Succeed,” attracted immigrants, educators, students, business owners and government officials.

Held in the Wright State Nutter Center Berry Room, the summit focused on making Dayton the best place for immigrants to launch and grow their businesses. Participants discussed education strategies, trends in immigrant policies and economic development, and how to attract and retain a talented workforce.

“We all stand to benefit if we get immigrants to move here and then they invest in the area,” said Tony Ortiz, associate vice president of Latino affairs at Wright State.
