Fixing bad immigration laws are top-of-mind for Mayor Ed Lee as he prepares to attend an upcoming March For Innovation with Angel Investor Ron Conway, as well as New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He offered PandoDaily the exclusive interview at today’s LAUNCH Festival in San Francisco. He was supposed to speak LIVE in front of the audience of 5,000, but the conference was running late, and the Mayor had to run. So we sat down with him to talk about about immigration, the slow rollout of the gross receipts tax (which entrepreneurs are still complaining to us about), and a new platform, which he says is seamless, and which creates a one-stop shop for all the forms startups need to fill out in order to have a business in San Francisco. You can watch it above.
