Are there EB-5 Regional Centers in the biotechnology or pharmaceutical sectors?

Are there any existing EB-5 Regional Centers that are in the biotechnology or pharmaceutical industry sector? If so, where are they located and is there any way to take a closer look at their structure in order to increase the chances of success for the Regional Center that we (consortium of small pharma and biotechs) would like to create?

The best example of a biomedical facility is the Jay Peak ANC Biomedical facility in Newport Vermont which is under construction. Also, the University of Miami has a Life Sciences building which has been erected with EB 5 funding.

Yes, there are EB-5 Regional Centers that are designated for these industries.The list of Regional Centers is available on the USCIS website, however, you may want to consider consulting with EB-5 counsel both immigration and corporate securities to determine what may work for your particular project.An EB-5 experienced economist can also provide good insight on what is viable when trying to raise capital through this program.

I am not aware of any, but you could still make an individual investment into a biotech or pharma company which is not part of a regional center.

There are several EB-5 Regional Centers in the biotechnology or pharmaceutical sectors. I believe that is Atlantic Regional Center for Foreign Investment, LLC (ARCFi) in North Carolina (Interstate 77), and one under Vermont Regional Service Center. There may be others as well. You should do a thorough search with the help of an experience EB-5 attorney. Also remember formation of the Regional Center is one aspect of a successful Regional Center. Another aspect is marketing the project to foreign investors for which you would also need a well-defined strategy as well as professional help.

The regional centers are based on geography, not industry. There is no reason you could not try to set up such an investment.

Yes, take a look at IFCell, a stem cell research project being run under the auspices of the Vermont Regional Center. Another option will be under the Northern Rockies Regional Center, which has a biotech project which should be market ready within 2-3 weeks.

There are EB5 Regional Center EB5 projects in Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical sectors.i would suggest that you first contact an experienced and credible EB5 Attorney who has the expertise in forming EB5 Regional Center EB5 Projects.With the EB5 Attorneys assistance you may also review similar EB5 projects and analyze the EB5 legal requirements for your EB5 goals. There is also a substantial need for you to determine how to make an EB-5 project marketable. In conclusion it is more effective to start with legal representation early rather than later.
