The astute reader will notice an extra widget on the right hand side of the blog here. It’s in support of the Startup Visa idea which will grant visas to entrepreneurs with existing funding looking to start their companies in the states.
This initiative will create new jobs and significantly increase the talent pool of highly-skilled entrepreneurs in the states.
The Startup Visa Act proposes legislation to modify the existing EB-5 Visa drive job creation in the US and increase American global competiveness by helping immigrant entrepreneurs secure visas to the United States and create new companies, where there is investment capital available from a sponsoring US venture capital or angel investor of at least $100,000 in an equity financing of not less than $250,000.

One thought on “Support the Startup Visa”
The StartUp Visa bill is great. It is an exciting way to raise the discussion on how to leverage immigration as as job-creating stimulus. And its cost-efficient!
