What Every Startup Needs to Know about Hiring Immigrants

August 7, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Networking, dinner and refreshments included in ticket price. Space is limited so secure your spot early.


This second part of a 2-part series will be presented by Sophie Alcorn, Silicon Valley Immigration Attorney. Sophie’s firm, Alcorn Immigration Law, helps corporations, start-ups and small businesses in Silicon Valley sponsor the biggest talent in technical fields for U.S. Immigration. Alcorn Immigration Law has a 95% success rate in defending immigration and innovation with visas, green cards and citizenship.

Through her practice Ms. Alcorn has come to find the most commonly asked question around Startups and immigration is “How can I stay in the United States or how can I get into the United States”. Even though there are so many options and so many laws that allow for legal immigration to the United States it’s so confusing to try to decipher them and navigate them.

Many judges have complained that it’s even more complicated than our complex tax law system, which is made even more difficult given that most people who need to navigate U.S. immigration laws are from countries where English is not the first language.

The first part of the workshop focused on the followiing topics:

How to Come to the U.S. Temporarily to Begin Your Startup
How to Move to the U.S. Permanently and Get a Green Card
How to Sponsor Your International Employees for U.S. Immigration

This second part in the 2-part series will focus on the following topics: 

  • How Founders Can Immigrate to the U.S.
