Expert speakers from a range of disciplines will address “EB-5 Regional Center Designation, Management and Investors Procurement” at a Friday, April. 29, 2011, seminar in Houston, Texas, Artisan Business Group, Inc., announced today.

EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program was created by the U.S. Congress in 1990 to stimulate the economy through job creation and capital investment. Immigrant investors create a new commercial enterprise or invest in a troubled business, and high net worth overseas investors get an available and expedient green card option. More than $2.5 billion has been invested in American enterprises through EB-5 in the last five years, creating tens of thousands of new jobs for U.S. workers. China and Korea are the largest markets for the U.S. EB-5 regional center investment projects as many Asian families wish to send their children to the U.S. for better education.
The Houston EB-5 seminar will provide the latest legal and market information and updates to real estate and legal professionals who are experienced with EB-5 program and to those who are new to the program, including:
- Immigration and business attorneys: The EB-5 program is a highly beneficial permanent residence option for wealthy investors from China, Korea, Latin America, the Middle East and other parts of the world .
- Businesses seeking EB-5 alternative capital: Given the current condition of the financial market, the EB-5 program may be the answer for many real estate and clean energy as well as various type of investment projects without traditional capital funding.
- Potential EB-5 Regional Center sponsors and developers: More than 90 percent of EB-5 investment is conducted through federally approved and designated EB-5 Regional Centers.
- Current EB-5 Regional Centers: The seminar will address developing a project through a Regional Center, properly setting up escrow accounts, drafting USCIS-compliant business plans, Regional Center administration and structuring an EB-5 enterprise, and effectively promoting and marketing the investment projects in China and other countries.
“The U.S. government created and established the EB-5 regional center pilot program. We’ve seen a lot interests from Chinese and Korean investors in past two years” said Brain Su, an EB-5 marketing expert speaking at the seminar. “Every day we learn something new about the EB-5 program.
