This week, staff writer Zoë Henry discusses the economic output of Dreamer entrepreneurs, or undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as small children. A recent Supreme Court decision clears the way for Congress to negotiate a path to citizenship for these immigrants, though the Trump Administration has said it intends to do away with DACA, the Obama-era program that affords them short-term legal protections. A recent report found that deporting Dreamers could mean a loss of $460 billion in economic output over the next decade, according to the House Committee on Small Business (Democrats.)
Then, staff writer Emily Canal discusses how 'Shark Tank' entrepreneur Daymond John motivates himself to achieve long-term goals. The FUBU founder and investor, the cover subject of Inc.'s March/April issue, dished about his recently published book, Rise and Grind, in which he interviews dozens of successful individuals at the top of their fields.
Finally, the group interviews Dave Halliwell and Rob Clark, co-founders of Lifecast, a Borehamwood, U.K.-based company that makes synthetic cadavers for medical training. Halliwell and Clark discuss what it was like to sell their business to the biotechnology firm SynDaver Labs.
