Hello, I am an exchange trainee, and I am starting an LLC with a friend who is a US citizen. I have read that I have to be a passive investor if i want the company to sponsor me for H1B. For the moment we have not raised money, we still do not have a client list, we have no premises but we are confident that the business will pick up rapidly. We are a risk consulting company on a pretty rare specialty so we believe we will have no problem for the degree and specialty requirements. Do you believe we can build a convincing case for an H1B petition ? We understand that we will have to provide cash flow previsions, and a business plan. What can make the difference in such a case ?
