Startup Hopes To Empower Legal Immigrants Through Online Document Filing System


Forbes reports on an interesting new immigration venture:

"It was personal for Felice Gorordo, the son of Cuban immigrants, when he decided to join a start-up that endeavored to streamline immigration. “I wanted the start-up to be a real game changer,” says Gorordo, President and CEO of Clearpath Immigration, a simplified online solution to immigration document filing.

Gorordo says his family came to America in search of freedom, and opportunity, and he hoped to assist others in similar situations. He partnered with Michael Petrucelli, Chairman and Founder of Clearpath. Before launching the start-up in 2010, Petrucelli was former Director of U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS), from 2003 to 2005.

Petrucelli’s purpose of easing the complexity he saw as inherent in the immigration process, coupled with his thorough knowledge of immigration, lured Gorordo to Clearpath’s team. And now Gorordo is banking on Clearpath to change the game by reducing the cost–barriers in filing immigration documents, among other issues. “Cost shouldn’t be a deterrent in immigration,” says Gorordo.'
