USCIS to Expand Entrepreneurs in Residence Initiative

May 10, 2013

USCIS, U.S.Citizenship and Immigration Services, officially launched its EIR, Entrepreneurs in Residence, initiative in a summit in Silicon Valley back in February 2012. This innovative initiative was brought together by startup experts and USCIS immigration experts to work collaboratively to streamline pathways for a range of existing visa categories often used by entrepreneurs.

Out of the many goals that contribute to the program's overall growth; there are three that really stand out:

  1. Create organized and easy-to-understand public materials to help entrepreneurs understand relevant visa categories.
  2. Training and preparing the USCIS staff with the right tools to adjudicate cases in today's complex business environment.
  3. Streamlining USCIS policies to better reflect the realities faced by foreign entrepreneurs and startup businesses.
