About this Event
Join us for a comprehensive exploration of the EB-5 program, an innovative investment-based immigration program that opens doors to exciting opportunities in the United States. This EB-5 event will bring together industry experts, students, and potential investors for an informative and interactive conference designed to explain the EB-5 process and showcase the potential for foreign investors to obtain permanent residency in the U.S. through job-creating investments. Our event will also provide comprehensive information to help students make informed decisions about leveraging EB-5 for their educational goals.
The conference will cover a wide range of topics, including the history of FirstPathway Partners, the requirements of the EB-5 visa program, how students can transition from a student visa to an EB-5 visa, and FPP’s new investment opportunity TALUS. This EB-5-centered conference will also allow students a unique opportunity to connect with Bruna directly in order to help them gain valuable insights on any questions that they may have.
