The equity model of the EB-5 Program is a supplemental capital option for Northern Nevada businesses which differs from the loan model. The foreign investors receive a minor equity position in the project in exchange for direct capital investment. The equity model offers quicker access to capital compared to the traditional EB-Program models and lower fees if the business has an existing relationship with a foreign investor.

The Administrator for NVEB-5, Lynn Beteag, said, “As a non-profit EB-5 Regional Center, we are pleased to have the opportunity to offer Northern Nevada businesses the equity model for capital acquisition. The equity model is a powerful supplement to a company’s capital portfolio. It enables expanding and new companies the ability to participate in the EB-5 program and reap the many benefits such as flexible terms and quicker access to capital in exchange for a very small percentage of equity in the project.”

The benefit of the EB-5 program to the foreign investor is they may obtain legal entry through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) program.
