  1. A Voice Crying in the South Dakota Wilderness for EB-5 By Gregory Finkelson

    A Voice Crying in the South Dakota Wilderness for EB-5

    The four candidates vying for the U.S. Senate seat in South Dakota vacated by retiring Senator Tim Johnson have made the EB-5 Investment Visa Program a campaign issue. Former Governor Mike Rounds is an advocate of the program. The other three are against it. One candidate has promised, if elected, to support legislation to eliminate the program altogether.

    Rounds is apparently the only one of the candidates who understands how the program works as he became well-versed in EB-5 through several projects funded and developed during his administration, including several dairies, The Dakota Provisions turkey processing plant and the Deadwood Mountain Grand Hotel, Casino and Event Center. The other three are focused on a single failed investment – one that, for one reason or another – did not have adequate operating capital.

    The three candidates focusing on the failure are ignorantly and erroneously blaming the EB-5 program itself. One of the candidates displayed his ignorance by claiming that the program “interferes with the free-market system.” Another says that he doesn’t think that people with money to invest should be given priority immigration status. These men clearly do not understand how the free market (a misappropriate use of the term) or the free enterprise system works. Nor do they understand the economic benefits of the infusion of capital to fund approved projects or the fact that EB-5 is designed to put Americans to work by creating or sustaining jobs.

    It is more and more important that our senators and congressmen understand the intent, purpose and potential impact of the EB-5 program.

  2. Seven Ways to Expedite EB-5 Investor Immigration By Gregory Finkelson

    Seven Ways to Expedite EB-5 Investor Immigration

    The USCIS has designated seven valid conditions upon which they will consider expediting an EB-5 visa request. Those reasons include:

    • A provable emergent situation
    • A severe potential or real financial loss to a company or an individual
    • A humanitarian situation
    • A project being developed by a non-profit organization that will further the cultural and social interests of the United States
    • A project that is compellingly in the interest of the USCIS
    • A situation that, if delayed, would be detrimental to the interest of the Department of Defense
    • A USCIS error

    Discounting the last item, which is not predictable, any Regional Center wishing to offer expedited EB-5 processing should look for projects and investors that fit one or more of the listed scenarios. Advance preparation and due diligence that take these situations into consideration up front can give a Regional Center a competitive advantage in processing time.

  3. IIUSA Adopts New Standards for EB-5 Regional Centers By Gregory Finkelson

    IIUSA Adopts New Standards for EB-5 Regional Centers

    The Association to Invest in the USA, better known as IIUSA, recently adopted a new “Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct” for its member affiliates. IIUSA is the trade association for EB-5 Regional Centers. As such, it promotes “responsible, professional and ethical behavior and reinforce[s] confidence in the EB-5 Program and EB-5 Regional Center industry among all stakeholders.”

    Along with the four-page ethics and standards document, the association also approved a six-page document that outlines the enforcement procedures it will follow to ensure compliance. Peter Joseph, Director of IIUSA, described the purpose of the documents, saying, “Proper oversight, transparency, compliance with – and enforcement of – all applicable laws and regulations are essential to maintain the confidence of all stakeholders and ensure that the program continues bring capital and job creation to American communities.”

    The Code of Ethics outlines the expectations that Regional Centers shall act with and promote competence, diligence, respect and the kind of integrity that places the interests of their clients above their own. The main document also includes “Standards of Professional Conduct” that cover topics such as compliance, objectivity, prudence, diligence, thoroughness, and professionalism.

  4. ICIC Recognizes the Economic Power of EB-5 By Gregory Finkelson

    The Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) published a new report in June 2014 entitled, “Increasing Economic Opportunity in Distressed Urban Communities.” The ICIC was founded in 1994 by Harvard Business School Professor Michael Porter and is considered the leading authority on inner-city economic development. Its mission is to “promote economic prosperity in America’s inner cities through private sector engagement” to create jobs, income and wealth-creation opportunities for inner city residents.

    The 50-page report not only reveals the EB-5 Investment Visa program as the powerful tool that it is, but it also acknowledges that the EB-5 program has been misunderstood, misrepresented and under-promoted, lost in “the bureaucratic labyrinth” typical of many government programs. Combined with suffering from some high-profile publicity from a few instances of fraud, the ICIC believes that the EB-5 program has not been allowed to reach its full potential. In fact, the report “recognizes the significant potential of the EB-5 Immigration Investor Program to drive more resources into America’s distressed urban cores.”

    The business of the ICIC is not merely research and reporting. It is well known as an action-oriented organization. To wit, it has, via the report, issued three major recommendations to help bring EB-5 to the attention of philanthropic organizations, city leaders, financial institutions, and economic and community development professionals. Those recommendations are 1) developing an educational campaign to raise awareness, 2) building a nexus of EB-5 experts to provide technical assistance, and 3) identifying and investing in EB-5 appropriate projects in distressed urban areas.

  5. How to Find Chinese Investors, Agents & Clients for Your EB-5 US Projects & Services

    By Gregory Finkelson

    There are a lot of projects all over the US looking for investors.

    There are also a lot of potential investors all over China wanting to acquire a US Green Card.

    The US economy and business model is a stark contrast to China’s. While the US is the land of free, China is the land of enterprise, but under strict regulations and controls.

    The EB-5 Visa Program provides an opportunity for American Entrepreneurs to easily attract capital from Chinese investors in exchange for Green Card Status.

    This book not only bridges the investment information gap, but also serves as a introduction for any US entrepreneur looking for almost free money for his/her business project.

    For Americans, it provides you with turnkey solutions, while you explore inexpensive ways to generate capital from China for your business prospects in the US. It exposes the Chinese business mindset and environment, including ways to capitalize on it for your American business advantage.

    We assume you already have a feasible project, idea or product, but that you have yet to find the capital you’re looking for your startup.

    With dynamics of worldwide markets shifting and economic scenarios switching, it is difficult to find reasonable seeding for your ventures that may promise sustainable profits, leaving you with enough profits to grow and move on.

    How to open your window to China? Here is our trade secret – our DIY guide “How to Find Chinese Investors, Agents & Clients for Your EB-5 Projects & Services. A Practical Guide for Regional Centers, Attorneys, Developers and Businessmen.

    ” The author, Dr. Gregory Finkelson, is an authority in International Business & Cross-Country Marketing. In the book he leads readers step-by-step through the entire process from scratch to successfully landing Chinese capital in the US.

    Chinese investors are not only eager, but desperate, to reach out to the US for a wide variety of reasons. They want to move with their families out from under the communist Chinese regime to the USA due to congruent ecological issues, totalitarian policies and many other problems.

    This guide itself is a testament of how accurate prospecting in China by US entrepreneurs can be a revolutionary way to nurture your projects from grass root level to multi-million dollar empires.

    It’s pragmatic, plausible and verifiable. The American government provides plenty of migration incentives to Chinese investors who would like to create employment opportunities with their investments across US. The depth of the US talent pool is ready to be shared, if appropriate venture capital is reciprocated for it by the Chinese investor.

    In simpler words, the EB-5 program explained in our guide will let you explore significant opportunities so that you can easily attract suitable and cost-free venture capital for your projects. The red environment in China does not give outsiders an opportunity to see through their infrastructure. Moreover, the linguistic and cultural gaps are an obstacle, although certainly not an insurmountable one, for anyone to tap this great potential.

    Through our guide, you’ll be able to avail almost free money from Chinese investors who are interested, first of all, to receive Green Cards for their families. All the while, you’ll be creating real revenue for yourself with “free money.”

    Free money? How?

    Interest free, that is. In order for your Chinese investor to establish his enterprise in the US they need to have legal immigration status. For that they have to invest from a $500,000 to a $1,000,000 fixed for a duration of five years. They will give the money to a Regional Center or US Developer for five years interest free in exchange for the Green Card for themselves and their family.

    The US-China investment situation is ideal. You can Google the facts, but what Google won’t tell you about is the deep rooted Chinese bureaucracy which has to be corresponded with American policies to make the EB-5 opportunity work. If you are a domestic entrepreneur or a key project manager needing to generate venture capital through foreign direct investments, this guide will walk you through the process of utilizing the EB-5 Investment Visa Program.

    Each investor must contribute $500,000 to $1,000,000. But the beauty of the program is that you can include any reasonable number of such investors in your project reach your funding goal.
    All you have to do is follow the procedure included in our EB-5 guide.

    Get your copy now and learn how you can develop an abundance of Chinese resources for your projects with virtually no risk.

    This resource is the only comprehensive guide that can help you fund your project and convert it into a winning enterprise using Chinese capital to support it. We invite you to visit our website at www.business-visa-usa.com
