U.S. Visa and Green Card Options for International Entrepreneurs and Investors

Starting a business is incredibly difficult. Picking the best prospects to invest in is challenging as well. Looking to ratchet up the difficulty factor even more? Try starting or investing in a business in a different country! Luckily for us, Dana Roxana Bucin, an attorney who practices international business and immigration law here in Connecticut (and who was once a foreigner herself), breaks down the process for VentureClash’s Jessica Dodge. If you’re an entrepreneur or investor who wants to do business in Connecticut but you’re not a U.S. citizen, watch this webinar packed with tips and advice on how to navigate through the system.

Join us as we listen to Attorney Bucin describe:

  • The various immigration categories that exist for immigration into the United States
  • Where to start
  • How to navigate the path to citizenship
  • The types of green cards available to entrepreneurs and investors
  • The new Obama administration proposal that she’s excited about (hint: it gives foreign entrepreneurs up to two years of “parole” to work in the United States)


Who should watch

International entrepreneurs, including company founders, inventors, researchers, entrepreneurs, professionals engaged in work in the national interest of the United States, and certain investors.
