Business Beat: Immigrant, women entrepreneurs in U.S.
Monday’s Morning Edition on NPR featured a story about a Columbia biotech startup. We thought we’d give it an encore run on KBIA in case you missed it. After hearing Shihab’s unique story, I called Laurel Smith-Doer, who’s a professor of sociology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She’s studied immigrant and women entrepreneurs in biotech in the New England area. I asked her what she’s found in her research.
