There is no requirement for a petitioning company to have been in existence a certain number of years prior to being able to petition H-1B workers. In fact, many petitioners are new companies or even startups.
The main factors in getting an H-1B petition approved are:
1. The job offered must be such that it requires at least someone with a Bachelor's degree or higher to perform its duties; and
2. The company must be able to justify such a position requirement.
And, of course, the foreign national beneficiary's diploma and/or qualifications must be in the same field as the job offered.
