Nitin Pachisia is an entrepreneur-turned-investor and recently featured in Forbes for his work with Unshackled Ventures, but prior to this he experienced the myths and misinformation that many immigrant entrepreneurs face when forming a startup.

Join us for a discussion with Nitin as he shares his own experience founding startups while on a visa and how immigrant entrepreneurs can find the right information on how to start their next venture. Are you an aspiring entrepreneur without U.S. citizenship? Do you want to stay in the U.S. to and start your own business but have questions on how to do it? Do you want to better understand the venture resources available for immigrant entrepreneurs?

On Monday, April 8, the Innovation Institute will be hosting a fireside style session with Unshackled Ventures founding partner, Nitin Pachisia. Unshackled Ventures is a Silicon Valley based pre-seed fund focused on immigrant founders and international students. RSVP Here.

For students: Work as a part of the Unshackled team during the school year. Learn more here.


Unshackled Ventures was started in 2014 with a single mission: help immigrant founders succeed faster.
