I have a close friend who has floated a company to pursue an entrepreneurial dream.
My husband is currently working in US and has filed for GC (140 approved status). I have an EAD and am working in a company very close to where I am staying.

My friend has requested me to help market clients for the product that they are developing.. Is it ok for me to approach companies, as a representative of my friend's company and try selling the product(strictly non-compensational)? Or will there be legal hassles in doing this? Please enlighten me with your thoughts..

Appreciate your help in advance.

This sounds like volunteering opportunity to me. May be other senior members on the forum will also throw some light on this scenario.
As far as I know, you can volunteer in any area as long as you do not get paid for those services.

Given your immigration status - You can work part time or volunteer as long as it does not conflict with your current employers business interest and terms & conditions of employment.

Since you are on EAD, and I presume you are the dependent applicant, there is no limit on the number of jobs that you can have....Definitely there is no legal hassle...and I wonder why you want to just volunteer? If its fear of legal implication then, change your mind and get paid !!! :)

Thx gapala, wandmaker and lostingcprocess... Appreciate your prompt response.

No compensation only because it is for a close family friend.

My sister is currently working abroad as a Nurse and is looking to work in US. I have done some asking around and figured that Nurses are not welcomed in US as they used to be.

My question is: Is it possible for my sister to come and work in the country on an H1 visa, since she cannot come in with GC anyways. If yes, how do I explore this avenue.

I am raising this query through IV forum to get more clarity on her options. I am being told that there are specialist nurses who are coming in, on H1 to US. Only I can't validate it with anyone.

Any help would be appreciated as always.

Look forward to hearing from you all..

She can absolutely come and work on a H1, provided she has a hospital to process her paperwork.

To best of my understand Nurses are still welcomed in the US. She just needs to find a job with a hospital which is willing to apply for H1B.

I dont understand why you are hesitating to do this. Since you have EAD, you can do volunteer work as long as you wont get paid. There wont be any legal hassles in doing this
