What Is This, and Why Should You Care?
I'm a non-US entrepreneur. I want to build my company in the United States. There's no US "startup visa" category that lets me do this. That's really crazy and messed up!
Yes, you’re so right! It IS really crazy and messed up that it’s so hard for non-US founders to build companies here. And in the current political climate, this is unlikely to change anytime soon.
The structure of US immigration law hasn’t evolved much since 1990. That was 27 years ago. It was before the internet! Our work visa categories are hoary old fossils. The visa processing system is an ancient, lumbering dinosaur.
In the past year, it’s grown big teeth and gotten ferociously hostile, too.
And no, it definitely doesn’t include a nice practical visa category for immigrant founders to start businesses in the United States.
So what does a smart entrepreneur do, when confronted with an archaic legal code base like this? Hacks and workarounds, of course! You work with what you’ve got, to achieve the result you want.
That’s what VisaBuilder is about.
