Work Visas for Founders: AMA for International Startups Launching in the U.S., with Legalpad
Hosted by Techstars, the event will touch on how immigrants within or outside of the US can tap into and enter the US startup ecosystem.
Although the US is yet to implement a startup visa that would clear a pathway for entrepreneurs to launch U.S. companies, this event aims to provide valuable information from two Techstars founders that are helping fellow entrepreneurs navigate the US immigration system.
Both Sara Itucas and Logan Ullyott will share insights into what they’ve learned from helping hundreds of startups secure work visas and green cards.
