I hold equity in a start-up based in Singapore as one of its technical advisers on its board. I am not a co-founder, investor or an employee of the company. I do not receive any salary. I am an Indian citizen.
This fall, I will go to the US on a J-1 visa as a postdoc. Am I allowed to retain the equity and remain an adviser to the non-US startup while on a J-1 visa?
