In this week’s Immigration Law for Tech Startups podcast, I am joined by my esteemed colleague, Nadia Zaidi, as we discuss all the latest updates on the International Entrepreneur Parole (IEP), about one year since its reactivation by the Biden administration.
We’re getting a lot of inquiries about whether IEP is the right path, and so we want to help you with this episode to be able to better assess your own options based on how this has all played out in the last year. We explain what that means for aspiring startup founders, existing startup founders, and how to think about this category of status to come live and work in the United States. We also have some updates about the startup visa which does not exist yet and is currently being negotiated in the U.S. House and Senate.
