I'm on F-1 visa. Somebody told me I can start a business but only as a passive investor. How do you start a business as a passive investor? I need some advise on starting my own business as a passive investor. How do you do it?
It is risky. You can lose your capital! Unless you are the son of an Arab oil magnate or of a Russian minigarch you should be careful,before entrusting your money to somebody else and have him run (of even own a great part of the business the "active" partner will own and operate on his own, without you,'the "passive" investor having much say so on the expenditure of your money or the running of the business.
