Emerson Collective to incubate innovation in immigration advocacy

With the fate of DACA uncertain, Laurene Powell Jobs’s Emerson Collective is setting up an Immigration Innovation Incubator to support services, advocacy and political action for U.S. immigrants.

Forty million immigrants make up more than 13% of the U.S. population and account for 15% of GDP. “Innovators must develop and accelerate solutions that enable immigrants to thrive in the United States,” the Emerson Collective declared.

The philanthropic investment firm also supports Unshackled Ventures to invest in foreign-born entrepreneurs and supports their visa applications. The new incubator will enroll at least three startups in the two-year program.

The ventures will get access to Emerson staff and field experts and be paid $80,000 a year, plus a $7,000 health-care stipend.

Applications open Sept. 25 and close Oct. 20. Prepare your submission.
