Every human has the potential to find success, no matter what country, background, or socio-economic status they come from.
Individuals from around the world bring diverse experiences, innovative thinking, and work ethic that leads to growth of U.S. companies and jobs for Americans.
Finding solutions to stagnant issues – such as immigration restrictions and talent shortages – demands innovation from all sectors.
In 2018, when the narrative about immigrants in the U.S. was turning overwhelmingly negative, Open Avenues' founders came together to find new ways show that global talent serve as the backbone of the U.S. innovation economy.
Our founders wanted to do more to augment the depth of that impact and create new opportunities for foreign talent to contribute to the betterment of U.S. society.
So we built programs, led by innovators, entrepreneurs, and experts from around the world, to break down barriers, bridge educational gaps, and build social capital for diverse U.S. student populations.
Because by opening avenues for global talent to lead, educate, and build in the United States, we all move forward.
