Crowdfunding vs. EB-5 for investors plus deals that closed!


Google crowdfund, crowdfunding, etc. and you can read for months or years about it!  Crowdfunding is a dream in my view, but dreams do come true!  However, Google “EB-5” in the news and you will see results.  Round One: EB-5 one vs. Crowdfunding zero for investors!

The Good: Crowdfunding deals are working today and no investors = no SEC.

The Bad: Crowdfunding for regular investors is years away from seeing results thanks to the SEC.

The Ugly:  Crowdfunding works today, so will the SEC end a good thing!

Bottom Line: Go to non-Crowdfunding event if you want funding!

ABOUT EB-5 VISA:

The EB-5 visa for Immigrant Investors is a United States visa created by the Immigration Act of 1990. This visa provides a method of obtaining a green card for foreign nationals who invest money in the United States.[1] To obtain the visa, individuals must invest $1,000,000 (or at least $500,000 in a “Targeted Employment Area” – high unemployment or rural area), creating or preserving at least 10 jobs for U.S. workers excluding the investor and their immediate family.[1] Initially, under the first EB-5 program, the foreign investor was required to create an entirely new commercial enterprise; however, under the Pilot Program investments can be made directly in a job-generating commercial enterprise (new, or existing – “Troubled Business”[2]), or into a “Regional Center” – a 3rd party-managed investment vehicle (private or public), which assumes the responsibility of creating the requisite jobs.
