    Hi,

     

    We are 3 people planning a startup in US with VC funding. One of them is a citizen, one on GC and the other one is on H1B. I understand that a H1B can own a business in US. My questions are:

     

    1. Can the new company have his H1B transferred and he can be on the rolls of the new company and draw a salary?? Please note that the company will be formed new.

     

    Suggestions are welcome.

    Hey guys,

     

    we are Fabian and Ivan from Hamburg, Germany and try to realize our lifetime dream through Kickstarter (Crowd funding).

    In fact we dislike self-promotion in terms of spam but in our current position there is no other possibility and otherwise we can bury our lifetime dream.

    Our plan is to found a new fashion brand. Fashion means to us shoes, fragrances for him and her and headphones. Our marketing-concept is based on promotion through celebrities. In the past it was possible to us to get a good connection to popular people. There onto we want to open a store in Los Angeles, Hollywood to emphasize the elegance and exclusivity.

    For our big plan we need 3.5Mio € to be competitive on the international market. In this cause we published our intentions on Kickstarter to get our project financed through crowd funding.

    It would be awesome if you support us. Every euro brings us further and of course we have little considerations for you helping us.

    We got after 12 hours almost 12.000€.

    We thank you with all our heart and you can have a look at the following link:

    Best regards,

    Fabian and Ivan
