Can I start a company on a visa? Yes, you can! A Q&A with Unshackled Ventures
Unshackled Ventures started in 2014 with a single mission: help immigrant founders succeed faster. By providing access to capital, a unique network of co-investors and full immigration support – including visa sponsorship and employment – Unshackled gives immigrant entrepreneurs the opportunity to innovate and tackle some of the US’s biggest problems. The fund invests in first-time entrepreneurs at the earliest stages and is sector agnostic. Learn more about Unshackled’s new fund and what’s most likely to invest in.
Join a discussion with Manan Mehta, founding partner at Unshackled, as he shares his own experience backing startups with founders on a visa. We will discuss best practices in raising pre-seed capital and validating your product with early customers.
For students interested in working with Unshackled during the school year, Unshackled is bringing its fellowship program to Brown. Learn more here.
The event is co-sponsored by Brex & First Republic bank.
