First of all, this is not me asking for legal advice. I'm aware that the law has its own experts and individual cases. This is just an inquiry on something I don't know if it's possible or not. I've been passionate about primitive marketing essentials since I was a little child. This passion has transformed in university to what's called entrepreneurship. I always get excited about new ideas. I can feel the blood rushing into my brain whenever I think about taking risks or choosing a road filled with uncertain endeavors. Every time I think about starting up something, (Let's not even call it a startup; let's call it an experiment) I get struck with harsh realities, including that I'm living in a place where there's no potential really for emerging businesses. You can name lots of factors to start with, but a small fact like that sometimes during the whole day we suffer from severe electricity cutoffs should be enough. Now, I don't know what to do. I've been trying to make this whole thing work (transferring my passion into a reality through working hard) and I've failed more than once. The circumstances are simply against me. Now a decision may seem appropriate for my case, which is getting out and establishing a business in Silicon Valley, but we all know it's hard to get there, considering that there's no immigration law for Entrepreneurs (even ones backed by an investment) My question here is: Any suggestions? Is there any hint I'm not aware of that can make the transition to SV easier/doable? What's the first step I should take?

Parachuting into Silicon Valley wouldn't be the answer. Sure, they have reliable electrical power; but that doesn't mean someone would land on his feet with a job or that his next project will succeed.

I suppose you could partner with someone in the United States to work remotely on a startup. If the company takes off, then you might fly back and forth between your country and the USA and eventually relocate here if it made sense for the business and your own goals.

But maybe your country has electrical outages in part because talented, hard-working people like yourself leave as soon as possible to innovate elsewhere rather than putting their skills to good use at home.

That is a simplistic statement, of course. Yet aren't the best entrepreneurial ideas those that identify and fix a problem in our day-to-day environment? If you're leaving a place where you can see what needs to be improved or introduced simply to come to a less familiar place where most new ideas are redundant or frivolous, then you may be limiting your own potential to make a difference in the world. Go where problems are!
