This research assesses the contribution of skilled immigrants in the creation of engineering and technology businesses and intellectual property in the United States. The authors found there was at least one immigrant key founder in 25.3 percent of all engineering and technology companies established in the U.S. between 1995 and 2005 inclusive. The authors estimate that, together, this pool of immigrant-founded companies was responsible for generating more than $52 billion in 2005 sales and creating just under 450,000 jobs as of 2005.
