There is a proposal lately to push the US government to create a startup visa for brilliant innovators/entrepreneus from outside USA. With this visa, it is said that these innovators will be allowed to enter USA and stay for two years as long as they can get funding of $250,000 from a VC.
The question is, which some people are also wondering, how can someone from abroad get that much funding from a VC? Personally I would have to know the personality of the person I will invest in. How would a VC risk giving that much money for someone from abroad? How can a VC sign an agreement with someone that is not bound by the same law? Is trust not actually needed anymore?
Is this proposal flawed? Is there something that this proposal forgot to consider? Or maybe it would be as easy as said on the proposal to secure a $250,000 funding from a VC? Have I missed any information here that might also be useful for others like me?
