Behind every outstanding immigrant founder you meet, likely there’s a complex story of how many hoops they had to jump through in order to get here.

That’s what a panel of three immigrant founders and an immigration attorney will aim to tackle on May 18 at the Microsoft Reactor Philadelphia during Immigrants and Entrepreneurship: A Panel Discussion.

Here’s the lineup of speakers:
