Recently I was amazed to read a story in the Wall Street Journal about the differences in visa policies in and beyond the United States. As a Missouri entrepreneur, I have never faced this challenge myself. However, within the states, I have read about many stories, such as the Illinois inventors of Netscape, who had to flee elsewhere to find private equity. That’s when I was reminded that such races for entrepreneurial capital are not new at all. This short Nobel Peace Prize winner video story reminds us of one such example.
