Reshma was granted a start-up visa for the UK and she is a great example in 2020 of a successful applicant.
In this video, we discuss Reshma’s journey and how she navigated through the visa application process.
“What really helped me with the process of discovering the start-up visa was the fact that I would often go to the visa office at my student union. I would talk to them about how I wanted to stay in the UK and ask whether the start-up visa was the right route for me to do so. It was through those meetings that I was informed that my university was sponsoring students and so I registered with my university.”
With help from the university, Reshma was able to make her start-up into a reality. once she got sponsored by her university, she then went on to create her business plan.
“so initially I thought that this visa route would not be suitable for me as my idea was not technology-based. However, when I looked at the criteria, which emphasised the need for innovative, scalable and viable businesses- I noticed that my business idea was able to fulfil such criteria. Whilst there are Bollywood style dance classes already in the UK, I focused on the issue of mental health. I know there is a rise in mental health problems like anxiety and depression and the NHS explains that dance can improve your mood and reduce stress. So, I saw dance classes as a great way to help people improve their mental health because it allowed people to work as a group and encourage each of them to cooperate. ”
With an identifiable audience for her business and research to support her business, Reshmas then discussed the actual visa application process.
“I was quite surprised by how quick the process was. The act that there no interview was something that also surprised me because when I applied for my student visa, I had to give an interview. I got my answer in two days which stated that I got the visa. All I had to do was give my fingerprints for the BRP [Biometric Resident Permit] and submit some documents.”
