  • 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.
