In this week’s Immigration Law for Tech Startups podcast, Jeff Farrah joins me as we discuss the International Entrepreneur Parole, how Jeff’s efforts directly supported this new immigration pathway to exist for all of you to apply for, as well as about the startup visa and other things that venture capitalists care about when it comes to immigrant startup founders.
Jeff is the General Counsel at the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA). A Southern Californian native, Jeff is an attorney who has worked in Washington for many years in the Department of Commerce, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, and the Ways and Means Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives. Jeff continues to advocate for Congress and the White House and different agencies for pro-entrepreneurship policies.
Jeff believes immigrant entrepreneurs are part of the fabric of the American startup ecosystem and we would not be where we are as a country in terms of job creation and innovation.
