Pre-seed for visionary immigrants.
We've built the best place for U.S. immigrants to launch a company, no matter their current work authorization. From student visas to being a new U.S. citizen, we're here to take the burden of immigration and financial restraints off your plate.
It’s never too early for us.
We back immigrant founders at day 0—impressive people building revolutionary companies.
