International entrepreneurs with an eye on American markets can take advantage of the East Stroudsburg University (ESU) Business Accelerator’s resources under an innovative new visa program.

ESU is the first and only institution in Pennsylvania to offer a newly expanded J-1 Visa that now allows not only visiting scholars and researchers but also international entrepreneurs to come to the U.S. for up to five years to develop new businesses. Offices are available for start-up companies and wet-labs are available for biotechnology, advanced chemistry and other life science companies. The ESU J-1 Visa and the Business Accelerator provide foreign companies the ability to establish business in Pennsylvania with little initial investment liability.

Applicants interested in the J-1 Visa can apply here or find information regarding the qualification requirements and pre-screening application form in the links section on the right.
