Innovative Solutions to Tech’s Immigration Issues

Date TBA


Amanda Gupta


U.S. immigration rules have always made it difficult for tech companies to hire foreign talent, but the current administration’s “Buy American Hire American” policies have made it worse. With the current political climate and ever-changing U.S. immigration policies, trying to navigate the best route to sponsor a visa for a prospective employee can be a minefield. But there are options. In this session, we will explore the alternatives to H-1B visas which innovative firms are using to hire the international staff they need to compete in the global market.
