How would a bridge loan help my project to be more successful in raising capital?

Bridge capital can help in two important ways:

Firstly, it helps the project to get moving before all of the EB-5 capital has been raised, thereby negating the waiting period while investors are one over and processed by USCIS. From a marketing perspective, demonstrating to investors that a project is already underway helps them to gain confidence that the project is real and that there will be no delays in job creation.

Secondly, if your economist calculates indirect jobs for your project using expenditures as the input into their model, arranging for bridge financing (which must be initially contemplated as a short-term loan) can help these expenditures to be made sooner and therefore allow the project to have technically created the jobs that are related to those expenditures. This means from a marketing perspective, that projects can be marketed to investors showing them that some or all of the job creation required has already happened, thereby increasing investor confidence.
