Potential Immigration Help for Tech Entrepreneurs

Restrictive immigration laws have long caused problems for Silicon Valley. According to Silicon Valley, foreign nationals who come to the U.S. to study often end up starting up companies in their home countries. In most cases, they would prefer to start their businesses here in the U.S., but the immigration process is just to cumbersome and daunting. In response, CIS has expressed a desire to become “more responsive to the fast-changing needs of tech start-ups.” According to CBS news, CIS intends to tap 5 individuals from the private sector to “guide policy and training for officials who make decisions on individual immigration applications.” The goal, CIS says, is “to keep the agency from applying traditional formulas to the unorthodox business models common on the startup scene.” What exactly will be developed remains to be be seen.
