I am an software engineer in a French startup that will be participating in an accelerator in the US for a couple of months.
I am from an african country so I need a visa to travel to the US. Also, I am en employee, not a co-founder, and I don't have any shares or stock in the company. Also, I will continue being employed and paid by the French company.
What visa should I apply for ?
I did a lot of research and I think I should apply for a B1 visa. But since it is not supposed to cover "productive work", I am not sure 100%.
Does that mean that I should not be doing any programming during my stay in the US ? I am the only software developer working on the product, so that may be a little inconvenient for us.
