In this week’s Immigration Law for Tech Startups podcast, I’m joined by Melia Russell, a senior tech reporter at the financial and business news website, Business Insider. She particularly covers startups and venture capital focusing on growth-stage companies, tech investment details, and workplace issues, including immigration-related matters. Today, we’re going to be talking about all things related to journalism, immigrants, and technology. Recently, Melia has been promoted to a correspondent at Insider.
Melia likes to cover emerging issues in law and policy related to immigrants and tech startups as well as reporting on immigrant-founded tech companies. These topics are somewhat a niche in the world but are so important to the Silicon Valley ecosystem and innovation.
