Nonimmigrant Options for Entrepreneurs - Recording (.MP3)
2:00 PM (ET)
Finding an appropriate employment-based visa is often difficult enough, but for entrepreneurs the options are even more limited. This intermediate panel is intended as a discussion of nonimmigrant visa options specifically for foreign nationals who are trying to enter the United States to create and operate an American business. Our expert faculty will discuss strategies for foreign nationals trying to obtain work authorization in order to create and direct their own company. They also will address the formation of a business, and when work authorization becomes necessary in a company’s early days. Finally, the pros and cons of different visa options will be examined as they relate to the entrepreneur.
