Higher education is using some creative solutions to address the lack of available H-1B visas for graduates who want to remain in the United States as entrepreneurs. The H-1B visa is well known for allowing U.S. employers to employ foreign nationals in professional positions requiring at least a bachelor’s degree; yet the number of new H-1B workers is subject to an annual statutory cap, with demand for new H-1B workers far exceeding the supply of available numbers. Certain types of institutions, including colleges and universities, however, are exempt from the H-1B cap. In the absence of immigration reform, some states, cities and institutions of higher education have developed innovative cap-exempt collaborations with cap-subject U.S. employers and entrepreneurs to address the ongoing H-1B supply/demand gap.
