      It is legal provided you get approved concurrent H-1 for that business.

        It is legal to *start* any number of entities with or without any visa, including H-1B, what is not legal is to *work* for that entity without obtaining the concurrent visa which the previous poster suggests.

        It is often a shock for many in the US when they realize that you can start, own, direct, etc any number of businesses in the US, so long as you do not work for the business you start, own, direct, etc. For example, you can buy stock in any company in the US and own all of it, without even stepping foot in the US, or without having anything more than a tourist visa.
