    I might not fully understand this, but it looks like you are monetizing something that really should not be monetized at all or monetizable in the first place by a company.

    I am just asking as I am not living in the US, so it might be completely normal to sell documents.

    Get all the forms needed for your application mailed directly to your door within 48 hours.

    Can applicants not do that already from official resources?

    Receive a list of American companies that provide sponsorship for jobs in your industry.

    Where does that information come from; Why is that not publicly available already? How is it legal to monetize this type of data? Are you grooming this List manually? How do companies add themselves to this list? Or is this product from companies on this list?


    No tea no shade, but it looks like you are preying on people who get lost in a bureaucratic jungle and who probably are desperate, with already very limited financial resources, to just get this over with.

    Again, I don't know how this process normally works so this might be totally normal, but it looks very fishy to me.


    Also, your "Information from reputable resources" contain href="#" links - they don't work.

      It appears that they don't either. Which raises a red flag to me.

      Hey. Thanks for your feedback, all very valid points to flag,

      All of the services we've listed are fake, they're designed to understand what people may need assistance with. Having this 'painted door' means we don't actually have to create all these services.

      All the services we've listed are services that other immigration services offer - can't stress enough, we're just using this to gleam some feedback.

      Currently you need to either invest huge amount of time understanding the requirements or blindly invest heavily in legal assistance. Without doing your homework there's no way to scanning whole categories of visas you may be eligible for free, it's the sort of thing a lawyer will charge $100 for a 20 minute conversation.

      Our ultimate goal is to help people discover and influence their visa options. Hope our MVP currently demonstrates that functionality.

      The feedback you've given is a strong indication that we shouldn't offer these services for our next iteration, this will definitely influence our next test.

      Thanks for sharing, exactly the sort of thing we're looking for.

    Hey Designer News.

    I’ve been working in design/product for nearly 10 years now, and I’ve always aspired to create my own product/service.

    So here it goes… I’ve finally managed to team up with some like minded people and found Possible. Possible is a decision making engine that matches tech/design professionals to the visas they need to work in the US.

    We’re at a very early stage and this is our first MVP, figured DN would be a great place to get some much needed feedback.

    Thanks in advance, Tyler.
