Financing your Business

After suffering from the most serious financial crisis since the 30s, the U.S. economy to obtain traditional bank financing is quite challenging for businesses. In this context foreign capital is becoming increasingly needed. More and more businesses are looking for foreign capital through the opportunities of the Immigrant Investment Program. If you are looking for capital and funding for your business, you may benefit from our Foreign Direct Investment Initiative.

Options for financing your business:

E-2 Treaty Investors

The E-2 nonimmigrant classification allows a national of a treaty country (a country with which the United States maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation) to be admitted to the United States when investing a substantial amount of capital in a U.S. business.  Certain employees of such a person or of a qualifying organization may also be eligible for this classification.

E-1 Trade Investors

The E-1 nonimmigrant classification allows a national of a treaty country (a country with which the United States maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation) to be admitted to the United States solely to engage in international trade on his or her own behalf.  Certain employees of such a person or of a qualifying organization may also be eligible for this classification.
