ARCG New England Regional Center
Status: Coming Soon
ARCG New England Regional Center uses its specialized knowledge to bridge the gap between project developers seeking capital and the increasingly rigorous demands of EB-5 investors.
With a population of over 6.5 million people Massachusetts serves as the hub for the 14.4 million people that live in the six states that form New England. Massachusetts was the birthplace not only of the American Revolution, but also the cradle of the Industrial Revolution in the United States. The state has a long and distinguished tradition of ingenuity, innovation and entrepreneurship that makes it an ideal location for conducting business. Massachusetts is home to some of the best colleges in the country including Harvard, MIT, Amherst and Williams. The mill towns throughout the state have been replaced by research centers where the entrepreneurs from the state’s colleges and universities churn out the next generation technologies. The colleges and universities provide the highly educated workforce that is required to support key sectors of the state’s economy including, biotechnology, finance, health care, and higher education. Massachusetts’ economy produces the nation’s sixth highest GDP per capita.
The state’s innovation goes beyond the business world and into the world of sports. In 1891 the sport of basketball was invented in the Western Massachusetts town of Springfield. Just four years later the sport of volleyball was created ten miles away in the town of Holyoke, MA.
Massachusetts is tied for first place (with California) in patents per capita.
Massachusetts invests more than 5 percent of its Gross State Product (GSP) in R&D, the best performance of any single region in the world.
Massachusetts small businesses rank first per capita in winning federal Small Business Innovation Research Contracts.
ARCG management begins its project selection process by getting to know the company’s management and assessing its ability to execute the proposed project. Following the initial assessment of management’s capabilities, fundamental company documents are reviewed. These documents include key supply and sales contracts, project engineering and permitting documents, and financial statements. This review is particularly focused on potential liabilities, such as pending environmental or regulatory issues, liens on the company’s assets, outstanding litigation against the firm, and potential weaknesses in the project plan. The processevaluates the key risks to the company and the investment.
These risks include: execution risk, technical risk, financial risk, and commercial risk; which must be addressed to protect potential EB-5 investors. ARCG may also seek the help of outside experts to review technical aspects of the project. These experts can include: engineers to review project design and construction plans; permitting consultants to verify all local, state and federal permitting regulations have been addressed, specialized industry consultants who can best assist the market feasibility of the project and our immigration consultants and economists to determine if the project will comply with the EB5 program requirements in terms of job creation.
ARCG and its financial partners perform an exhaustive due diligence process on all projects to determine compliance with current legislation.
