This month, we'll have Elizaveta "Lisa" Eisenberg, an experienced immigration lawyer, discuss immigration options for startups who have a foreign founder or who seek to retain foreign employees. Lisa will review work visas and permanent residence options most commonly used by startups, discuss current trends, and identify best practices in overcoming the unique challenges faced by early stage companies dealing with immigration issues. We'll provide pizza and beer.
