What are the requirements to get a visa and green card as an international entrepreneur? Is the start-up visa effective?
A few options for Entrepreneurial Visas:
If I may verify the processing times involved in NIW. Since it falls under EB2 category, I am assuming it may be a long time before I can get my EAD card and be able to change employers. Also, I want to confirm if there could be issues if I change employers during the process - If so, I'd prefer to change my current employer before starting with it.

I am on H-1B visa and in green card process (waiting for I-485 date to become current). I would like to know if I buy and rent houses on my own name (without forming an LLC) and actively manage the activities (finding a renter, maintenance etc) and make profit out of those rentals, then would it violate my status?
See clip from Attorney Rajiv S. Khanna's conference call video that addresses this question.
Mr. Rajiv Khanna, Mr. Kunal Sharma and the rest of the team have been very patient and extremely supportive.
I had filed for my immigrant visa through my spouse, and it was quite complicated. Couple of the other lawyers we spoke to said that there are no chances in winning this case, but Mr Khanna was firm, that the fundamentals are right and thus we have a good chance. Finally, after 2 long years, my immigrant visa has been approved.
What impressed me the most is the Mr. Khanna would immediately schedule an appointment (no charge, of course) every time there was some news from the immigration office or from my side. Even during the final stages, I had asked him a few questions regarding my DS-260 as i was very nervous, he scheduled an appointment immediately and told me exactly what to answer in each question. They made me feel as if I was their only customer. Excellent effort and care for each case by the team, and I would surely refer his firm to everyone.
USCIS is in the process of implementing a proposed “significant public benefit” parole program for entrepreneurs. This is one of the executive actions on immigration announced by President Obama on November 20, 2014.
