[Q] What does "EB-5" stand for exactly?

It stands for Employment-based 5th category. Under the U.S. immigration law, there are five different categories of immigrating through employment-based avenues, and since EB-5 deals with employment-creation, it's been designated as the 5th category of Employment-based methods of immigrating. EB-5 is also commonly referred to as Investor Green Card or Investment Green Card.
