JYOTI BANSAL’S 7 YEAR GREEN CARD WAIT TO START A RS. 13,000 CRORE COMPANY

Jyoti Bansal, a graduate of IIT, went to America with dreams of starting a company in America and Silicon Valley. Given restrictive immigration laws, he had to toil away as a H1B visa holder which has so many restrictions, including being tied to your job as you wait for permanent immigration and prevents you from starting a company. Finally, after a 7 year long wait he got his green card or permanent citizenship, and shortly after in 2008 he formed AppDynamics. Today it employs 900+ people and has a market value of US $ 1.9 billion which is Rupees 13,000 crore approximately. The answered question here is how many such visionaries have either given up their dreams or are still stuck trying to get to the immigration finish line, so they can start their dream life?
