Designated organizations for the Start-up Visa Program: Find a start-up to support
Find a start-up to support
As a designated organization, you can develop your own process for receiving proposals from immigrant entrepreneurs. You can also develop your own criteria to assess them. It’s up to you to find potential immigrant entrepreneurs you’d like to support.
Make an investment or pledge your support
For an immigrant entrepreneur to be eligible for start-up visa, they must get your investment or support.
Here is the minimum investment or support you must give:
- if you are a designated venture capital fund, you must make a minimum investment of $200,000 into their business
- if you are a designated angel investor group, you must make a minimum investment of $75,000 into their business
- if you are a designated business incubator, you must accept the immigrant entrepreneur into one of your incubation/acceleration programs
You can team up with other designated organizations to meet the minimum investment or support required.
