The Passion to create something innovative is an important driver for startups. We have been hearing about ideas, innovations and the flames that ignite in young entrepreneurs in their journey towards a successful startup. The global pandemic brought a boom in startups and several countries are opening Immigration doors for Startups.
Prime Minister of India Mr Narendra Modi announced 16 January as National Startup Day. At the time when Shark Tanks India (an Indian business reality Television series on Sony Entertainment) was gaining popularity, this news was taken with much enthusiasm by Indians. Shark Tank features entrepreneurs presenting their business ideas to a panel of Sharks who decide to invest in the idea based on the pitch & business potential.
Several other countries are also opening Immigration doors for startups. These countries offer Startup visa programs aimed at individuals with innovative ideas and the passion to develop businesses globally. This Visa allows entrepreneurs to invest funds, raise funds, start a business and look for PR status afterwards (on meeting specific requirements) in a foreign nation. This not just gives an opportunity to entrepreneurs to move internationally but also helps countries boost their economies.
In January 2022, the President of the United States Mr Joe Biden also proposed ‘Startup visas’ to attract talent to the United States. The proposal talked about opening up new visas for talented individuals from across the world. He emphasised that this is an important step in advancing legislation to enable stronger supply chains and reinvigorate the innovation engine of the country’s economy.
What inspires people to startup?
The world has witnessed a huge surge in Startup culture. Startups help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams, work with people having similar passions by creating jobs and simultaneously play an important role in building the economy of the country.
There are several startup books for entrepreneurs that help get businesses off the ground and stay inspired. And others talk about the journey of entrepreneurs, not just success stories but also failures. Yes, you read that right. Not all startups end up with a success story. But what is common is the dream to achieve something that could be an outcome of a passion, problem, experience or personality.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE REASONS THAT INSPIRE PEOPLE TO STARTUP:
Solution To Own Struggles
Several times we find ideas through our own struggles & challenges. When we are dealing with issues such as medical, financial, or career we think of ideas to solve our own problems.
Being their own boss
Not everyone can take orders and work for others, some have the personality to work for themselves in a free environment. These startups could be inspired by passion, education or even family backgrounds.
Addressing the Social issues
We do come across organisations that run for a social cause. The means to give back to society or country. The larger goals remain the same, to solve a problem, a problem faced by millions of people and make an impact in the community at a larger level.
Expanding Existing Business
We all love our country but simultaneously we seek opportunities in other countries for better prospects, education, investments or expansions. Not just for Indians, this is true for foreign entrepreneurs investing in India as well. What we see next are diverse cultures, beliefs, customs, art, and traditions. There are several opportunities for entrepreneurs to obtain non-immigrant visas through the StartUp Visa programs for existing or new businesses and products.

WES Transcript evaluation is mandatory for both education and employment. WES helps in verification of the candidates educational credentials and gives a clear evaluation of degree/qualifications obtained from another country.
A transcript is an official document issued by an educational institution in the form of a sealed and stamped/signed envelope. These envelopes contain a detailed list of all the courses pursued in a program with the associated grades/marks received by the student during his education at the institute/college. etranscripts are also issued by some institutions which are PDF documents of the official transcript, with security features. These are considered official if the final recipient directly receives the document by email from the issuing body.
Every country in the world has their own educational system that varies on different parameters and scoring systems. Transcript evaluation is the process of interpreting these transcripts earned from one country in terms of the educational system of another country.
