Can international students and scholars invest in a business while in the US? What about flipping houses?

The conversation will range from volunteer positions to selling on eBay to accepting awards with financial prizes to investment and entrepreneurship. It will address common scenarios and provide practical advice on what you can and can’t do with each visa classification, with a Q&A to address your questions. Register here.
