Company highlighted for success in leveraging technology that streamlines the immigration process for individuals and businesses

Chicago, June 12, 2015 — VISANOW, a leading provider of online immigration services in the U.S., was honored last night by Built In Chicago with the Moxie Award for Best Service Provider. The award recognized VISANOW for its online service that streamlines the process for individuals seeking to work in the U.S. and the companies that want to hire them.

VISANOW has been on a tear since late 2014 when it raised $16 million in venture capital funding from General Catalyst Partners. The company is growing its staff from 75 at the end of 2014 to nearly 200 by the end of this year, prompting a move to new headquarters in the Loop later this month. Revenue growth is up 50 percent year to date, driven by leading clients such as the Chicago Blackhawks, as well as hundreds of small and medium sized businesses. VISANOW has filed nearly 4,000 cases on behalf of more than 400 Chicagoland companies and individuals.

“We’re honored by the recognition, which is testament to the importance we place on providing outstanding service to our corporate and individual customers,” said Dick Burke, president and CEO of VISANOW. “Chicago is itself an immigrant success story and that legacy, combined with the breadth and depth of technology talent in the region, makes the city the perfect place for us to build our business.”

Working with individuals and companies, VISANOW streamlines the tedious and confusing visa application process by automatically gathering required information, forms and documents from both the sponsor and applicant, then dynamically generating a complete, accurate and personalized application. Throughout the process, clients have access to attorneys to handle unique needs. This combination of automation, transparency and high customer touch offers an unparalleled user experience, helping clients save time, money and stress. Since inception, the company has prepared cases for tens of thousands of visa applications with a greater than 95 percent approval rate.
