Comment: Erratum

In Yesterday's Immigration Daily we have quoted the Detroit Free Press on Michigan's new EB-5 regional center. To clarify, this is the second state-owned regional center (not second statewide). We thank Boyd Campbell for alerting us to this.

Focus: Engaging Potential EB-5 Investors Abroad

Is your Regional Center meeting its capital raising requirements?
Are you a United States Immigration attorney; and express an
interest in increasing the potential amount of 526 business? If
your answer is yes, then ILW would like to invite you to learn
more about our Overseas Direct Investor Presentations.


ILW will customize an overseas marketing event that will be
exclusive to your organization and will be tailored to generate
business relative to the EB-5 industry directly to your firm.


We have successfully planned and executed these EB-5 marketing
events in two cities in India as well as two separate events in
Dubai, thus far in 2013.


We specifically research and target select regions as well as
individuals of high net-worth status and guarantee the attendance
of qualified individuals with the appropriate financial means of
being able to participate in an EB-5 investment, furthermore,
individuals that express immediate interest in immigrating to the
United States through utility of the EB-5 program.


What We Offer:



  • Guaranteed attendance of only qualified individuals of high
    net-worth status, in specific, individuals that meet the
    necessary criteria for the EB-5 program.

  • Finely tuned filtration and scrubbing process to ensure the
    proper quality of attendees and mitigation of EB-5 broker and
    "window shopper" attendance.

  • Complete strategic planning of all logistical implementation
    related to: travel schedule, hotel accommodations, program
    itinerary, refreshments, event marketing, event advertising,
    translation services, securing of venue, presentation aid
    assistance, post event follow ups and provision of contact
    information of attendees to presenting client post event.

  • 100% exclusivity: unlike foreign "exposition" type settings,
    we only execute events for individual clients at a time in order
    to completely eliminate any instance of competition on the day of
    presentation.

  • Organic leads: we ensure to only invite brand new attendees
    for our events in order to exclusively provide our clients with
    fresh leads as opposed to recycling contacts made from past.

  • An intimate ambiance: we purposely guarantee a minimum number
    of attendees ranging between 25-30 attendees in total per event
    in order to ensure all questions are answered thoroughly and that
    direct contact is established between the presenter and potential
    investor. In addition, we ensure that each potential investor has
    an opportunity to sit down with the presenter in a private 1 on 1
    sit down in immediately after the presentation portion which
    increases transparency for the potential investor.

  • A unique opportunity for professionals that participate in
    this service to convert as many possible investors without paying
    a single cent in commission or any relative fees as typically
    witnessed in the Beijing EB-5 industry.

  • Fully ethical and SEC compliant services related solely to
    marketing which does not involve the selling or facilitation of
    security placement.

  • An extremely competitive and moderate fair and flat cost that
    covers every notion associated with this service other than the
    departure and return flight from the U.S. to the overseas
    destination.


We urge all those who are interested to obtain further
information about this service by directly contacting us. Please
be advised, our services are not limited to EB-5 business,
attorneys seeking EB-1, EB-2 and EB-3 business are welcome to
contact us as we are capable of executing this precise service
without sole limitation related to EB-5.


Please contact us at 212.545.0818 or write us at eb5@ilw.com and we ensure to respond
accordingly in no less than 24 hours after receipt of
inquiry.
