Working Woman Report News Brief (4/3/14)

A STUDY RELEASED BY THE KAUFFMAN FOUNDATION REVEALS THAT SOUTH FLORIDA HAS GROWN FASTER THAN ALL THE OTHER TOP CITIES IN IMMIGRANT TECH ENTREPRENEURSHIP. ALTHOUGH THE NEW YORK, L.A. AND SAN FRANCISCO METRO AREAS ACCOUNTED FOR ABOUT A THIRD OF ALL IMMIGRANT HIGH-TECH ENTREPRENEURS IN THE COUNTRY IN 2011, MIAMI AND FORT LAUDERDALE HAD THE NO. 1 AND NO. 3 HIGHEST RATES OF FOREIGN-BORN TECH ENTREPRENEURS, SIGNIFICANTLY AHEAD OF TECH HUBS LIKE SAN FRANCISCO, NEW YORK AND AUSTIN. SAN JOSE, CALIF., WAS NO. 2.

AND SPEAKING OF TECHNOLOGY, MANY PEOPLE OUTSIDE BIG CITIES LIKE NY AND SAN FRANCISCO ARE DISCOVERING THEIR INNER “INN-KEEPER” THANKS TO ONLINE ROOM RENTING SITES LIKE AIRBNB AND FLIPKEY. AN ARTICLE OUT OF THE STAR TRIBUNE IN MINNEAPOLIS FEATURES ONE WOMAN IN MINNETONKA MINNESOTA WHO IS PART OF A GROWING NETWORK OF HOMEOWNERS IN MORE REMOTE AREAS WHO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RENT OUT THEIR ROOMS. IN THE CASE OF AIRBNB TRAVELERS FIND PROPERTIES ON THE WEBSITE BY PLUGGING IN A CITY. ONCE A RESERVATION IS MADE, AIRBNB TAKES ITS CUT BY CHARGING A FEE TO BOTH THE HOST AND GUEST.
