U.S. Immigration Options for Foreign High-Tech Professionals, Entrepreneurs & Startups: The H-1B Visa

  • Capital Factory 701 Brazos St., 16th Floor Austin, TX 78701 (map)

In less than 8 weeks, U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) will begin accepting new H-1B petitions for skilled workers (on April 1st).   In light of last year's record number of H-1B petitions filed on April 1st (over 233,000) and the increased demand by U.S. businesses (especially in the high-tech sector) for highly-skilled foreign talent, it is expected that the 85,000 available H-1B visas will be gone within the first week of April this year.  

Join Capital Factory and Immigration Attorney, Jason Finkelman, on February 9th for an in-depth discussion into the H-1B visa category, including eligibility requirements, the H-1B cap and lottery system, recent trends, and unique strategies for employers, high-tech professionals, entrepreneurs and startups to ensure their best chances for success.
