[Q] A troubled business has only 6 full-time jobs. Can I still invest and do EB-5 case through this biz?


Each investor in a “troubled business” must show that the investment will save ten jobs. Therefore, 4 more jobs must be created. Basically, although 6 full-time jobs can be saved, 4 more full-time positions must be created. An EB-5 project involving a "troubled business" may offer some advantages, but from a marketing point of view, potential alien investors are afraid of investing in any business that is considered to be "troubled".
