USCIS Entrepreneurs in Residence Tactical Team

USCIS has partnered with business experts to improve the way they approach the employment-based and high-skilled visa categories used by immigrant entrepreneurs.

Director Alejandro Mayorkas kicked-off this innovative program, called the Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIR) initiative in February.

The EIR initiative consists of a tactical team comprised of outside experts working alongside USCIS employees.

For 90 days this collaborative team, comprised of both USCIS employees and entrepreneurs from the private sector, will identify opportunities where USCIS can streamline pathways for foreign entrepreneurs.
