On August 31, 2016, USCIS published a new proposed rule in the Federal Register, which would grant parole to certain international entrepreneurs. In light of the fact that there are very few immigration options for foreign startup options in the US, this rule is a stopgap measure that will help the American economy while we wait for a longer-term solution.

The U.S. Alliance for International Entrepreneurs (a group which I co-founded) has published a summary of the rule and initial recommendations. Visit the USAIE website for our complete response, and for general immigration information pertaining to immigrant entrepreneurs. Or, view our response in PDF format here.
