Visa for entrepreneurs? (Rio de Janeiro)

Dear all,

I've just arrived in Rio to prepare the opening of a small business.

I'm not sure of what's the best visa option for me.

I know I can apply for an investor visa if I invest 150,000 BRL, which I might at some point, but I'd prefer to have something that does not depend on this as I still need to put some work in my project prior to the opening.

It seems like it might also be possible to get the visto para investidor if we show we'll create 10 local jobs.

Are there alternatives? Does anyone have experience with this?
Thank you !

Sébastien
