EB-5 Financing Opportunity
Thank you for your interest in the Pittsburgh Regional Investment Center. We work in collaboration with Southwestern Pennsylvanian enterprises to promote economic growth, business innovation, and local job creation.
What is EB-5
Congress created the Fifth Employment-based Preference (EB-5) Immigrant Visa Category in 1990 for high net-worth foreigners seeking to invest in a business that will benefit the U.S. economy and create at least 10 full-time jobs for U.S. workers. The basic amount required to invest is $1 million, although that amount is reduced to $500,000 if the investment is made in a high unemployment area. The benefits of the immigration program are simple. The American business receives start-up or expansion capital, and the immigrant investor receives a minority business ownership and an expedited Green Card.
What We Do
The Pittsburgh Regional Investment Center, a program of Idea Foundry, Inc., was created to promote investment and growth in Southwestern Pennsylvania. We source high net-worth immigrant investors who wish to invest in an American business in order to obtain lawful permanent residence through the EB-5 Green Card program. The EB-5 program has already attracted billions of dollars into emerging and expanding American businesses and provides an optimal source of business-financing with attractive terms.
The Pittsburgh Regional Investment Center facilitates investments in Southwestern Pennsylvania, specifically Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Lawrence, Washington, and Westmoreland counties.
