There are over 600 Regional Centers designated by USCIS. The EB-5 market is oversaturated with extensive competition as a result of the long list of EB-5 Projects that are being offered. Due to such fierce competition, Regional Centers tend to seek assistance from third-party vendors to reach out to investors and promote their EB-5 Projects.
Regional Centers usually outsource their marketing services to attorneys, agents, and immigration consultants. Let’s face it, while these could potentially be suitable channels to promote EB-5 Projects on behalf of Regional Centers, such service providers lack the marketing know-how to ensure successful delivery of promotional campaigns that Regional Centers require for their EB-5 Projects.
Our consultants regularly travel the world to promote the EB-5 Regional Center program, and have the pulse of the EB-5 market to structure your EB-5 Regional Center and/or EB-5 Project so that it is attractive to foreign investors. By paying close attention to the details of your project, Encubate ensures that your Regional Center and EB-5 Projects are set apart from the competition; thereby making it more attractive to EB-5 applicants from around the world who are looking to immigrate to the United States through the EB-5 Regional Center Program.
EB-5 CAPITAL FUNDRAISING

CAPITAL FUNDING SEGMENTS
In today’s economic climate, finding conventional financing for development is becoming exceedingly difficult. Banking institutions have tightened credit to the point where even the most proven investors and organizations must demonstrate substantial equity investment before construction loans are provided. Furthermore, when banks do agree to fund a development project, the financing offered is usually in the form of short-term bridge loans, which lack the portfolio stability needed to attract private venture capital. On the other hand, when U.S. venture capital gets involved, it is invariably in the form of very high interest mezzanine financing, creating risk issues which makes other potential investors steer clear.
For these reasons, U.S. projects seeking funding are turning increasingly toward foreign venture capital that is generally available at lower interest rates than U.S. venture capital, especially when paired with immigration structuring for the investor. Through the EB-5 Program or other suitable investment-based visas, the cost of such funding can actually be substantially lower than the best bank rates available. Encubate works with many types of clients to develop structured, targeted foreign venture capitalization plans which addresses the needs and wants of foreign investors and the goals of our clients.
