Join us on Wednesday, June 16 from 12:00-1:00PM for the International Entrepreneur Program for Startups with Matthew Hellrung.


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 Matthew Hellrung, 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.

His practice focuses on non-immigrant and immigrant employment-based visa issues, as well as advising investors and large multi-national corporations on immigration practice and policy concerns.
