Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 15, 2012
Artisan Business Group Inc., is hosting an EB-5 investment seminar where EB-5 regional centers, commercial real estate developers and capital-seeking businesses won’t want to miss, in Washington, DC, October 15, 2012. The EB-5 workshop at Courtyard Arlington Crystal City Hotel/Reagan National Airport will exclusively focus on EB-5 regional center activities, project marketing and investor procurement in China and Korea.
The one day event will feature an honorary guest and speaker Mr. Charles Wang, Co-founder and CEO of GreenTech Automotive. The GTA has recently opened its manufacturing facility in Mississippi. GTA successfully raised EB-5 funding in China and other foreign countries. The GTA project is one of the very few manufacturing-related EB-5 programs that has successfully utilized EB-5 finance and created hundreds of American jobs in the U.S. Mr. Wang will share his personal story and insights of raising EB-5 capital for an All-American manufacturing plant in the state of Mississippi. Angelique Brunner, President of EB-5 Capital, will also be speaking at the event. Ms. Brunner is responsible for sourcing and structuring all projects for EB-5 Capital, including the Marriott Convention Center hotels and City Market at O Street Market in Washington, D.C, as well as the Sugarbush Ski Resort in Vermont.
Other VIP speakers include Brian Su, Artisan Business Group, Inc.; Jeff Carr, Economic & Policy Resources, Inc.; Kate Kalmykov & Steve Anpoell, Greenberg Traurig; Victor Shum, JMBM; Hong Yu, Wailian Overseas Group; Michael Gibson, USAdvisors.org; and David Hirson, Fragomen.
The EB-5 program— on which Mr. Su’s consultations are centered-- creates potential for U.S. businesses and project developers to tap into foreign capital sources that would otherwise be difficult to come by. The program, which is also referred to as the “Immigrant Investor Program,” is a 1990 initiative of Congress that seeks to stimulate the U.S. economy and job market through foreign investment. In return, foreign investors with high net worth are rewarded with a desirable green card alternative. Throughout the life of the program, billions of dollars of foreign investment have flowed into the U.S., much of which has come from China. With its growing economy and increasing wealth, China continues to provide a reliable source of foreign capital for U.S. developers. “China’s Private Wealth Report 2011,” published by China Merchants Bank, shows that Chinese interests in oversea immigration and real estate are growing. The publication also notes that approximately 27% of Chinese billionaires have been involved in emigration investment. The interest wealthy Chinese show in investing abroad, combined with the EB-5 program, provide a win-win solution that connects high net-worth Chinese individuals with U.S. businesses and developers needing financial backing. Individuals or business seeking funding specifically for real estate development projects are great candidates for the program.
