Can I start a business in the U.S.? I'm an entrepreneur and require immigration sponsorship--what are my options? What about visa classifications? Get answers to these and other questions at the International Students, Visas, & Starting a Company Workshop!

Our speaker is Matthew Meltzer, an Immigration Attorney from Meltzer Hellrung, LLC. Meltzer works with entrepreneurs, focused on employment-based immigration. He has filed over 1500 related petitions in numerous visa categories, including: B-1, E-2, F-1, H-1B, H-2A, H-2B, H-3, I, L-1, O-1, P-1, P-3, and TN. He advises companies regarding employee hiring and I-9 compliance, reorganizations and mergers, and government inspections.

A representative from the International Student Scholar Services (ISSS) office will be there to answer questions as well.

This workshop is hosted by the Technology Entrepreneur Center, Founders, Zero2One, and Unshackled Ventures.
