BridgeForth Capital specializes in EB-5 program financing. We sponsor immigration-linked investment funds that provide real estate developers, oil and gas ventures, and expanding businesses with capital from foreign investors seeking a visa under the U.S. Employment-Based Immigration Fifth Preference Visas Program, or EB-5 Program.
While there are many companies that offer services in EB-5 financing, we offer the “best-of-the-best” senior executive talent in disciplines that are key to successful EB-5 funding and implementation.
Members of our senior management team have substantial experience in structuring successful EB-5 program financings with a particular emphasis on real estate development, structured finance and corporate and securities law. Members have played a key role in structuring over $1.5 billion of EB-5 Program financings, including designing and structuring two of the largest publicly reported and recognized EB-5 capital raises in the United States.
BridgeForth Capital is a one-stop solution for executing an efficient and compliant EB-5 program capital raise. Whether you are a broker, individual investor or developer – we have what you need to succeed with your EB-5 goals.
