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!
