Focus: 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 since 2014 educating Chinese Students on EB-5 in New York, Washington DC, Massachusetts, Michigan and California. We will be conducting similar events in other locations soon. 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.
