On visa, no hope for GC anytime soon.

    Advice #1: Don't rely on "random folks on the internet" (aka Blind) for advice.

      Well, do you see your advise is oxymoron. if he follows you advise then he should not rely on your advise too.

    Do you work in Bangalore or Seattle? Are you moving to Bangalore for this? What stage are you in? Apart from visa blocks, any reason you're building in Bangalore rather than in the US? What kind of product do you have in mind? Are you friends with 123raj?

    Mate, we got more questions than answers out here in Blind :)

      I think visa blocks is enough of a reason to set up shop in Bglr compared to the US. When do you think he would ever get a GC or Citizenship if he stays here

    Yeh do it!
    Don't do it!
    If you do it you might fail and regret it!
    If you don't do it you might regret it!
    Whatever you decide make sure you base it off of these comments in blind!
    Good luck buddy!

    Build an MVP ( use your salary to pay developers with complementary skills). It will take several iterations to arrive at PMF. Also read Nail it and Scale It . Try to gain traction and then make a move. Building a product is easiest thing to do. Building a business is a skill.
