How We Started

Path Unbound is built on a mission to fight the stigma of “starving artists”. The creative community is hard-working and talented, yet many of us struggle to succeed financially. Some of us struggle to navigate the daunting scene of global mobility when opportunities take us outside of our home countries.

Every year, creative professionals move to countries like the United States to pursue their passion and build a new life. However, the immigration process is often confusing, lengthy and frustrating.

Path Unbound is founded by a group of creative artists and entrepreneurs who have successfully navigated through the complicated system of immigration and built rewarding careers globally. We want to help our community learn the ropes to be winners in their artistic careers and get the visas they need to achieve their dreams.

We believe in creatives helping creatives. We want you to know that there is no limit in what you can achieve. As a matter of fact, that is how we got the inspiration of our name – your path to success is unbound.

We are a group of creative entrepreneurs who truly believe in empowering our own community. We are a community dedicated to helping creative professions be smart in business, immigration and money. We want to start a movement to show the world that creatives can make more than art – we can become successful business leaders; build incredible amount of wealth; and navigate successfully through the complicated system of immigration.

We are big advocates of global mobility. If you dream of working and studying in the creative field outside of your home countries, we are committed to helping you succeed.
