Thank you. We are a pre-funded hardware/product design company that has been bootstrapping for about 1 year and now have projects to fund our efforts and R&D. As we move forward some of these options may be possible, but right now investment is out of the question.
We've also looked into having a sponsor. The truth be told if he was just here for 1 month, we could have the people we need to raise a seed round and get him over for good. Kind of a chicken and egg thing (always the case).
Are there companies that sponsor entrepreneurs here in the city he could work with?
At this time we are considering a J1 and the E3 looks interesting as well.
