The publication’s mission is to provide high-quality, objective news through peer-reviewed articles to a varied audience of immigration lawyers, securities lawyers, Regional Centers, EB-5 service providers and investors. Thank you to the contributing writers who penned informative articles for this issue; their articles have undergone a selective review process. This first issue of the magazine will be released at the Invest in America Shanghai Summit & Exhibition on March 15, 2013. In addition, thousands of copies will be mailed out, free-of-charge, to EB-5 professionals across the country. It will also be available digitally at www.eb5investors.com. Production Creative Director Frank Chlarson Thank you to those who made it possible, including our dedicated staff and our network of friends who helped us create this issue. We strive to be the leading resource of news and information about the EB-5 Visa Program. Graphic Designer Jen Keith With this magazine we hope to bring the EB-5 community together on the same page and foster understanding from readers who are new to the program. As of today, the program does what it set out to do at a C minus level: create jobs and bring investor money into the United States. Photography Barry Madani Jenny Ruley Gary W. Oben However, it is heavily regulated in areas which do not represent the “bigpicture” intent of this program legislators sought to accomplish. The EB-5 Program implemented effectively can help thousands of people achieve their dreams of coming to our country while injecting billions of dollars into our economy. I hope we can come together as a community, align ourselves into a unified front and make this happen. With support from you, EB5 Investors Magazine can serve as a tool to empower those voices in the community and further our goal of making this program the best it can be.
