Join us on Thursday, July 8 for Startups and Immigration: the Revival of the "International Entrepreneur" Program with Matt Meltzer.

 

In early May, the US government announced that the International Entrepreneur (IE) parole program, first introduced in 2017, will remain a viable program for foreign entrepreneurs to create and develop startup entities with high growth potential in the United States. In this workshop attorney Matt Meltzer, who specializes in corporate immigration law, will walk us through how this ruling will impact immigrant and foreign entrepreneurs in the short term and long term.
