How willing are tech startups to sponsor international students for full-time roles after graduation?

Honestly you’re in for a tough ride.

Having run two startups myself and hiring several people - I’d never consider an international student unless it was under VERY SPECIFIC circumstances.

  • You had already worked for me an an intern and proven yourself invaluable to me

This is the only circumstance in which I’d sponsor you as otherwise it just isn’t logical to spend money on a visa/sponsorship; especially when there are cheaper and equally capable alternatives who DON’T need sponsorship.
