Explaining the Startup Visa

The Startup Visa is:

  • A 2-year visa for immigrant founders who have raised at least $250k or $100k per founder for their startup
  • A green card after two years if the startup has at least: $1M in revenue, $1M in investor funding, or has hired 5 or more employees

Who is this useful for? Companies started by:

  • Students in American universities on F visas
  • Open-source contributers who have never met IRL before
  • YCombinator applicants
