Startups & immigration: myths, lies, and half-truths
TechCrunch has posted an informative article written by Singapore-born entrepreneur Desmond Lim, who has worked at early-stage startups and founded his own company, QuikForce.
International entrepreneurs will appreciate Lim’s commentary, which draws on his own experience and debunks commonly held perceptions. In his article, Lim offers introductory explanations of:
- the H-1B visa process and the different ways it is possible to obtain an H-1B visa, including through the new STEM OPT rule,
- alternatives to the H-1B visa,
- how foreigners can start companies in the US,
- how to obtain funding and find a legal startup to assist in the immigration process.
