Indian immigrants have succeeded in many prominent companies in the tech sector like Twitter, Google, IBM, Microsoft and more.

FREMONT, CA: With Jack Dorsey's resignation and Parag Agarwal's undertaking as CEO of Twitter, it is remarked that Indian immigrants not only head Twitter but many of the prominent companies in the tech sector including Google and Microsoft. After many in the Indian press highlighted this comment, Tesla CEO Elon Musk also picked up on this trend by tweeting USA benefits greatly from Indian Talent.

Agarwal who was born in Ajmer, a city in the Indian state of Rajasthan, joins the growing list of American tech executives of Indian descent which also includes Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, IBM head Arvind Krishna and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai. Stats are one way to identify Indian Americans success in tech, Seshadri Kumar recently said that he would be surprised if a dozen of the leading CEOs globally are from a country with 18 percent of the world's population. However, these Indian CEOs at the top of American tech companies are not the only examples of Indian American success. In an American community survey held in 2019, the analytical data showed an astounding success in the United States in achieving the Indian American Dream.

Indian immigrants are the second-largest immigrant group in the U.S, - after the immigrants from Mexico - which holds six percent of the U.S. foreign-born population. Indian Americans currently top the charts in income which can be a witness to their success. Among Indian Americans, the average family income between the ages of 25 and 55 was 133130 dollars in 2019, which is above the white median income of 86400 dollars. They also hold higher incomes than other Asian Americans as the average family income for Japanese, Filipino and Chinese Americans for ages 25 to 55 were around 100000 dollars in 2019.
