    Chinese Student Events in USA (Reg D offerings and law firms seeking Chinese clientele)
    Chinese international students are coming to the US in dramatically increased numbers. The explosion in undergrad Chinese students started a few years ago and continues. For EB-5 purposes Chinese students offer the best prospects. We have been conducting events in 2014 and 2015 educating Chinese Students on EB-5 in New York City, Washington DC and Boston. We will be conducting similar events in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Houston. For each city we promote the event to multiple campuses across the metropolitan region; this can vary from ten to twenty campuses per city. The time frame for the events is determined based on the academic calendar. These are short evening events that require a short single night stay trip from the sponsoring Regional Center or law firm. During the educational event covering the students' immigration options the sponsor makes a short presentation about their project or law firm. The event structure allows for plenty of networking opportunities with students. These events are available only to Regional Centers that use Regulation-D or to law firms, and we require clients to consult a securities attorney before signing up for these events. For more information please contact us at tel: 212-545-0818 or write to us at webmaster@ilw.com.

    Taiwan agent liaison

Our person on the ground in Taiwan, acting in compliance with Taiwanese law, puts issuers and broker dealers in direct contact with agents in Taiwan - we act as liaison, and arrange face-to-face meetings.
