Immigrant Entrepreneurs Summit

The Immigrant Entrepreneurs Summit exhibits the success stories of immigrant entrepreneurs. Business growth tips and keys to success when working with immigrant populations are shared in a non-competitive and supportive environment.


Immigrant Entrepreneurs Summit (IES) is a non-profit organization launched to help immigrants succeed in business. We bring businesses and individuals of diverse backgrounds together to share, learn, and celebrate the immigrant entrepreneurship experience and contribution to the overall community. Our work is in education, celebration and sharing the stories of immigrant entrepreneurs and businesses, and giving people opportunities to create new paths forward. We are a team of dedicated and diverse individuals with a passion to help immigrants and minorities become flourishing members of the community. We know the power that immigrants can bring to businesses. The unique talents, histories, and connection to others in their community are assets. We just want to offer opportunity. The numbers are great. Over the past 15 years since we first began, IES has helped in the formation of 1,800 new companies!
