An interesting question came up on Quora recently
I am a 23 year old app developer living in India. I found a social problem that can be solved at a global level – with an app. I’ve been studying Tech, Business, Startups for over 4 years now. I have a plan to build a startup in Silicon Valley. Can Immigrants build startups? Visa? What should I do?
I thought it was about startup ideas and hence I responded
It is great that you have an idea for a startup. If the idea is truly global as you state, is there a reason you cannot start it in India?
If you are able to start it in India and prove the idea has legs, you should be able to get funding from investors to expand it globally. If US is your end-target, you could consider expanding to that market too.
When it comes to startups’ : Crawl.. Walk … Run.. is the way to grow.
