Focus: Taiwan EB-5 Expo
December 7th, Taipei, Taiwan
ILW offers limited EB-5 exhibition opportunities at Taiwan EB5 Expo.
Taiwan is the ideal country to supplement your China raise because:

  • Taiwan is one of the larger EB-5 Markets, with about 125 to 150 investments per year raised
  • Taiwan has an agent structure similar to China (but lower cost than China) - there are approximately 60 agents in Taiwan, regulated under Taiwanese law
  • The language is the same in both China and Taiwan thus simplifying preparation of marketing material
  • Taiwan is very close geographically to China, so jet lag is minimized and productive time is maximized
  • ILW has significant capabilities in Taiwan through our representative who works on the ground there.
  • If you need further support in Taiwan, ILW offers ongoing Taiwan representation for EB-5 issuers, compliant with both Taiwanese and US law.
Format: All Day Expo featuring Exhibit Hall and frequent short seminars followed by 1-to-1 meetings (Speaking Opportunity included in Expo).

Price: $4,444
Discounts available for combo packages - Final Deadline: November 19th.
