Each EB-5 Visa applicant must invest a minimum of $USD500,000 in a job-creating venture.
For a project and job creating venture to be eligible for the EB-5 program and accessible by investors, a project must be located in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA), which is an area that has an unemployment rate that is greater than 150% of the national average.
Atlas Capital works with a team of consultants, developers and Regional Centres specific to each of our Project Locations to ensure our projects are TEA designated and able to generate the necessary number of full time jobs to meet USCIS approval; i.e. 10 permanent full time jobs.
Atlas Capital is a reputable Funds Manager and with sister-company SB&G Group as a Sponsor of our Projects, we ensure the financing of projects is optimised. We are able to provide senior loans, mezzanine loans, preferred equity, or joint venture equity into projects with owners and/or institutional equity partners.
For Atlas Capital, every project is unique.
