Startup & Entrepreneur Visas Worldwide: Worldwide Trends & Best PracticesCc: what Startup Visa Policies Can AchieveAttracting Foreign Business & Investment to Lithuania: the Role of Migration Policy - Vilnius, Lithuania. October 1st 2015Lessons from the UKGreat potential of the UK economy to appeal to world-class entrepreneurs is in fact jeopardised by red-tape, bureaucracy and inadequate immigration rules.

Lessons from Data on Migrant EntrepreneurshipImmigrants are, proportionally, more entrepreneurial than natives, yet need time and flexibility to start.It is yet to be demonstrated that entrepreneurs can, like commodities, be passed from country to country.

Lessons from Chile & FranceSelective programmes, with clear guidelines about the profile type of entrepreneurs, involving startup, entrepreneurship and innovation experts from the private sector + integrated in a mature eco-system work. It takes time.
