StartUp Visa Act

Will a Startup Visa lure entrepreneurs to the United States?

Are you an entrepreneur looking for a new home? Have you always dreamed of living and starting a business in the United States? If so, Uncle Sam wants you.

Yesterday, two U.S. senators introduced a bill that would offer visas to entrepreneurs who start companies in the country. According to the announcement, “The StartUp Visa Act of 2010 will allow an immigrant entrepreneur to
receive a two year visa if he or she can show that a qualified U.S. investor is
willing to dedicate a significant sum – a minimum of $250,000 – to the
immigrant’s startup venture.”
