This Week in Global Entrepreneurship - July 14, 2017

I'm writing this week's recap from a coffee shop in New York before heading to Chicago next week. My summer of constant travel is coming to an end and as much as I've loved it, I'm looking forward to having more of a schedule again. 

  • The big news of the week was the Trump administration announcing that they've delayed, and plan to eliminate, foreign founder visas. Lots was written about this, but I particularly like Steve Case's post about the impact this will have on the US.
  • There was shake-up in the coding bootcamp industry as Kaplan-backed Dev Bootcamp announced they would be closing their doors in December.   
  • First Round is, in my opinion, one of the more innovative VCs. I religiously read their emails and find almost every one extremely relevant. They're looking to fill two New York-based roles, more info here.  
  • Copenhagen edtech startup Peergrade announced this week that they've been accepted to Y Combinator. I've been following them for some time and am excited to watch their progress over the coming months.  
  • EY launched their new initiative, EY Fast Growth Platform, that will provide businesses with tailored startup, scaleup and global support. 

Until next week...
