Start a Business with an E2 Visa: Savvy Expats Live & Work in The USA
ONLINE EVENT: Register here: Perhaps your H1B visa expired or you lost the H1B visa lottery? Perhaps your student visa has ended. If your country is one of the 80 countries with an investor treaty with the US, you might consider the E2 visa. You can start a business (startup, franchise or acquisition), get an E2 visa, and you and your family can live, work and succeed in the USA. Your spouse doesn't have to work in the business attached to the E2 visa and can even seek employment with other companies. We will also examine the easier route to get an E2 Visa via a franchise. Find out how to pursue the American Dream in the land of opportunities. Feel free to share this invitation with your social networks, friends and family. Should you have any questions, don't hesitate to email [masked] We look forward to meeting you!
