The Startup Visa has been on it’s way to legislation since last year, the Startup Visa had been first introduced in the US Senate in 2010 but was allowed to expire. Now it’s time again, and I hope it will become legislation, because if there is one single thing I learned about what makes Silicon Valley what it is, it’s the constant influx of people from all over the world.
And if that can be increased we will see even more things happen here in Silicon Valley, and it will fuel the recovery of the US economy with both jobs and economic growth. It is the one single thing that the US can do to increase it’s competative advantage in the global economy.
I support the Startup Visa, as it will help many of the entrepreneurs I work with every day, read more about it here, in an interview by the Economic Times.
