EB-5 Capital Fundraising
The EB-5 program has proven to be a powerful tool to raise capital for private and public projects that benefit the U.S. economy. For those who want to take advantage of EB-5 capital, it is important to learn about the different EB-5 investment routes and how to integrate them into their fundraising efforts. As the majority of EB-5 investors participate in the program through a regional center, it is common to either create a regional center or affiliate with an existing one to supplement one’s fundraising activities. The process of establishing a regional center requires the submission of an I-924 application and can sometimes be lengthy, but one may desire more control over compliance, fundraising and promotional efforts. Another path is to team up with an existing regional center that has been designated by USCIS and is in good standing. Some capital seekers may also want to consider raising capital through direct investments not affiliated with a regional center.
