Federal judge rules in favor of International Entrepreneur Rule
Last Friday, federal judge James E. Boasberg of the U.S. District Court ruled against the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)’s delaying the International Entrepreneur Rule (IER), which will allow foreign entrepreneurs to build companies in the US.
The IER was created to permit foreign entrepreneurs to visit in or relocate to the US up to thirty months for the purposes of building their businesses. When the DHS delayed allowing foreign-based entrepreneurs from building companies in the US earlier this year, the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA), entrepreneurs, and startup companies challenged the legality of their doing so without publicly commenting about their intentions to create such a delay.
Now that this ruling has gone through, the foreign-based entrepreneurs and US public both have reasons to celebrate; for the former has an opportunity to develop the business which will go on to benefit the workforce and economy of the latter.
