How can a patent pending project be turned into a viable EB-5 project?

How can I qualify for an EB-5 visa, if I have a patent pending project, with a registered LLC, along with a second party investor? The second party investor is interested in investing $1M (million) to $5M (million) dollars in my patent pending project? What steps will I have to take to make this a viable EB-5 project?

You can structure it as a direct EB-5 investment. Make sure that the project will generate 10 full time jobs. You should consult an immigration attorney for other detailed requirements.

Your idea sounds like a typical technoprenuership project, which is a combination of technology and entrepreneurial skills. In order to nurture a project like yours into a viable EB-5 project, you need a select few professionals in addition to an EB-5 attorney. Your plan can be achieved, but pay particular attention to the foundational issues relating to the creation of your project such as of patent registration and valuation, capital infusion and its potential to create jobs. All these foundational issues and others like them can serve as attributes in building a viable EB-5 case and your efforts should be aimed at meeting the EB-5 requirements.

We would review the business model, financial projections, and more to determine viability of your project from a USCIS/EB-5 standpoint. Patents would be included in the considerations, but many other factors would also be considered.
