Tue, Feb 9 at 7:00 PM, Austin – Hear Zafar Choudhury Speak: U.S. Immigration Options for Foreign High-Tech Professionals, Entrepreneurs & Startups - The H-1B Visa


By: Capital Factory:

In less than 8 weeks, U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) will begin accepting new H-1B petitions for skilled workers (on April 1st).   In light of last year's record number of H-1B petitions filed on April 1st (over 233,000) and the increased demand by U.S. businesses (especially in the high-tech sector) for highly-skilled foreign talent, it is expected that the 85,000 available H-1B visas will be gone within the first week of April this year.

Join Capital Factory and Immigration Attorney, Jason Finkelman, on February 9th for an in-depth discussion into the H-1B visa category, including eligibility requirements, the H-1B cap and lottery system, recent trends, and unique strategies for employers, high-tech professionals, entrepreneurs and startups to ensure their best chances for success.
