Danilo Diaz Granados is a financial professional from Miami. He’s an expert on immigration as it pertains to entrepreneurs. His luxury goods boutique, Toys for Boys, offers advice on how talented professionals can use US immigration laws to their favor. Danilo Diaz Granados says there are seven different visa types of which foreign entrepreneurs have a strong chance of availing themselves. The visa types are as follows.
Foreign investor visa
Granados says the EB-5 visa is available for anyone moving to an urban area who can invest at least $1 million dollars or half that amount if they’re moving to a rural area.
The EB-2(C) is for anyone who has an advanced degree or can demonstrate that they have uniquely valuable expertise in a field. Also the applicant must prove that their special ability can be of benefit to the national interest.
Investor visa for treaty countries
If the applicant’s country of origin belongs to the E-2 treaty program they can apply for an E-2 visa. This is similar to the EB-5 except it only requires $100,000 in investment.
If an applicant can demonstrate that they possess unique entrepreneurial talent, such as having designed a phone app or started a business abroad, they may be eligible for an O-1 visa.
The L-1 visa is for executives or managers of large corporations. To qualify for this visa the applicant’s company must have offices both abroad and in the US and the applicant must have worked there for at least one year.
The famous H1B visa is designed for employees who can perform a task that a native worker would be unlikely to do or for which there is a shortage of native workers. These visas have many restrictions but if you can get one it can buy you time while you file for new immigration status.
Granados says most entrepreneurs will qualify for one of these visas. The downside is that it can take a while to be approved. But with perseverance any determined entrepreneur can get on the path to US citizenship.
Danilo Diaz Granados was an ambitious kid with big dreams. He applied to and was accepted at Babson College in Massachusetts, a renowned business school with many famous alumni. Shortly after graduating, he went to work for Fireman Capital, a Boston wealth management firm. He learned the ropes of wealth management and distinguished himself both as a hard worker and as a high performer.
After spending a few years in Boston, starting the Danilo WordPress blog, he received an offer he couldn’t refuse from a Miami firm, Capital Inversion. There he was given new responsibilities including managing the wealth of high net worth clients. It was at this time that his talents as a financial adviser and analyst began to flower. He started incorporating sophisticated models, taking into account macro, micro and demographic trends. He also started learning the intricacies of green energy, real estate, fine art, insurance, merchandising and venture capital. Danilo Diaz Granados was becoming a formidable master of markets.
He continued delivering huge returns to his high net worth customers throughout the 2000’s. This eventually led to the inevitable boardroom tenures and chairmanships as well as opportunities to pursue his own entrepreneurial interests. To date, he’s served on the boards of many companies and started a few of his own.
In 2013, LinkedIn shows that Danilo Diaz Granados and a few associates launched Bad Boy Toys. This startup is dedicated to promoting and proselytizing the Miami lifestyle to a new generation of entrepreneurs. He’s also served since 2010 in various executive roles with the telecom giant Movilway. Movilway is a leading cellular provider in Latin America and has its headquarters in Madrid, Spain.
Throughout his career Mr. Granados has enjoyed great success and done exciting things. He chiefly attributes that success to an adherence to a few simple principles. Honesty and hard work figure highly among them. But regarding capital markets he’s always strongly believed in sticking to the facts. He gathers all the relevant data that he can possibly uncover then submits it to proven qualitative and quantitative methods that have generated results over decades. For this reason you can bet on Danilo Diaz Granados to continue performing for years to come.
