How can an EB-5 investor attract other investors with his direct EB-5 business?

As an EB-5 investor in a direct investment business, I established an LLC and purchased a motel as my new commercial entity. I want to attract one or two more foreign investors who can invest in my company for its renovation and operation, and use this business to support their EB-5 applications. What is the process? Does this involve securities offerings? Can I do this as an EB-5 investor myself?

    Yes, you would need to comply with securities rules. Many investors involve their friends or retain an agent.

    Yes, you can do this. You need to hire an EB-5 attorney and several other professionals to advise you in the process. A purchased motel may or may not be the most suitable NCE.

    There is no secret way to attract investors. Normally in a direct investment, one attracts investors through their personal overseas friends or family.

    It is possible but you need to show that each investor will create 10 full-time jobs and my experience is most motels do not employ that many staff. Generally, if you are offering investments, you will need a private placement memorandum. Start off with an experienced professional who does this type of cases.
