Under the current proposed regulation, entrepreneurs would initially be granted up to two years in the US. The proposed rule provides for an extension of up to three years where it can be proven that the entrepreneur and the startup entity continue to provide a “significant public benefit.” Here, “significant public benefit” is yet another vague term but with a definition that at least theoretically holds the promise of flexibility: it can be demonstrated by evidence of substantial increases in capital investment, revenue or job creation. So, the proposal allows for a total of up to five years.
