About Us

Your FirstPathway into America

FirstPathway Partners helps foreign investors become United States citizens through the Department of Homeland Security Immigrant Investor (EB-5) program.

The investment is a $500,000 minimum required program, targeted toward high net worth individuals who understand and appreciate the convenience and timeliness created by participating in a carefully designed program.

FirstPathway Partners carefully vets projects for EB-5 suitability, risk, capital preservation and the facilitation of your Permanent Green Card. Our EB-5 project analysis examines all of the things that are important to you: like job creation, industry, location, timeline and certainty of project completion. This analysis, coupled with FirstPathway Partners’ conservative underwriting methodology, helps place investors in the best position for capital preservation.

FirstPathway Partners has set itself apart among EB-5 professionals, developers, and fund managers. Since 2008, FirstPathway Partners has assisted hundreds of immigrant investors through the employment-based fifth preference (EB-5) immigrant visa category regional center program, raising millions in EB-5 funds for job-creating enterprises. FirstPathway Partners is also one of few regional centers to have obtained I-829 approval, and redeemed full investor capital contributions, placing us in the highest category of EB-5 industry achievement.

FirstPathway Partners’ success originates from our ability to combine the understanding, track record, and resources you expect, with the trust and complimentary services you deserve. With decades of experience in government, publicly traded companies and real estate, investors can be confident in our ability to make their journey both secure and worry-free.
