There is so much talking about immigration these days. If we launch a Word of the Year competition, I bet that ‘Immigration’ would be the easy winner.
Some political parties base most of their agenda on banning immigrants. On their opposite side, the usual group of celebrities wants to welcome everybody.
Of course, they are both wrongs!
Intoxicated by power and money, they forget that immigration is not good or bad in itself. Bad immigration should be stopped; good immigration should be allowed. It’s not easy to distinguish between the two, but I know one thing. Startups and small entrepreneurs are always good immigration, 100% of the time.
Startups and small entrepreneurs create local jobs and pay local taxes. I know. I am an immigrant myself.
In this silly debate about immigration being good or bad, I’m taking a side: the third side. Immigration is not good or bad; it's on us. From now on, I’ll be available twice a week—free of charge—to support immigrants looking to build a tech business in the UK.
If I am in London, I’ll be in our startup incubator Level39.co. If I am traveling, I will use email, Skype, Hangout, Slack and the other tools available to any digital nomads.
Together we’ll prove wrong whoever think that immigration should always be banned or always accepted. Even better, it will be fun, one of the three pillars of the startup community.
Have fun, do good, make money.
