There is no investment treaty (E) with India, so if you want to work in the US, you would need to qualify for another non-immigrant visa.

The most common would be the H-1B, if there is a professional position in the US and you have the required degree or equivalent. Another possibility is the L-1A/L-1B. if you have a year of experience with a related Indian company, you can be transfered to the US related company to work either as an executive or specialized knowledge employee.
