Vivek Wadhwa named to Time’s List of Top Tech Thinkers

NEW YORK (TIP): Vivek Wadhwa, who holds academic appointments at Singularity University, Stanford University and Duke University, and last year was named to Foreign Policy magazine’s list of the Top 100 Global Thinkers, was named by Time magazine recently to its list of the 40 “Most Influential Minds in Tech.” Wadhwa, the magazine said, “has become a leading voice in debates over technology policy, particularly with respect to entrepreneurship, innovation and immigration.” “In his recent book, ‘The Immigrant Exodus: Why America Is Losing the Global Race to Capture Entrepreneurial Talent,’ Wadhwa describes how the U.S. is now telling the best immigrants to go home, due to a lack of immigration visas,” Time said. “As a result of this ‘reverse brain drain,’ as Wadhwa and his colleagues call it, highly skilled workers and professionals are increasingly looking to other global markets to locate their businesses.” “We’re seeing a boom in technology entrepreneurship in India, China, and even Russia, because the U.S. won’t let people stay here,” Wadhwa told Time. Early in his career, Wadhwa worked at Credit Suisse First Boston, where he helped develop technology for creating computeraided software-writing systems. The Indian American entrepreneur later founded software firm Relativity Technologies. Wadhwa is a columnist at Bloomberg Business Week and a contributor to various other publications, including The Indian Panorama.
