Press Release: Creating 10+ not one job at a time through investing in notes!


San Diego, California – January 22, 2013 – Red Hook Capital will be creating notes to co-invest with equity investors who want to come to the USA.  They will be investing $500k+ plus to create jobs.  Contact JD Morris with Red Hook Capital to attend an educational Webinar about investing in notes with EB-5 VISA equity investors.  Let us help build jobs not one at a time, but 10+ at a time! The note will be created by escrow company that specializes in notes, the deals are real estate deals by a tier one real estate company, and deal will be structured by tier one law firm.

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.
