The Problems with Current Entrepreneurial Visa Options

Stanford University hosted an event as part of their Entrepreneurship Week on Sunday, March 3 that was packed with 200 students looking for ways to get visas and green cards in order to jumpstart their ventures. As an immigration expert, Ms. Khandelwal shared her knowledge on the dos and don'ts of visas, and lamented the fact that H1-B visa holders, which some of the attendees were, cannot start up their own companies. "It does not allow you to work for anybody else," including your own business, she stated.
