How Foreign Investors Can Help You Scale – with Lauren Cohen

When scaling your business, you’ll hit a point where you need an infusion of capital.

Most business owners look for loans, grants, angel investors or venture capitalists. But here’s one that few CEOs know about or consider…

Foreign investors.

Foreign investors are uniquely positioned – and motivated – to help you scale your business. Better yet… most don’t want ownership in your company.

Curious? Tune in for this week’s Allie & You, where I interviewed attorney Lauren Cohen, an immigration and business law expert. Lauren is a bestselling author, international speaker, and CEO of two companies: e-Council, Inc., which offers concierge turnkey business immigration services, and ScaleUPCheckUP, which offers an online business assessment to companies that are scaling… and then connects you with a cross-functional team to plug the identified gaps.

Lauren was also recognized as one of 2017’s “Super Lawyers” by Attorney-at-Law magazine.

You’ll discover:

  • Ways that immigration law can help you grow your business and give you the competitive edge
  • What the EB5 visa is… and why it’s important to business owners (hint: it gets a bad rap in the media, but it’s actually quite helpful)
  • The smart way to tap into foreign investors – without having to give away any ownership of your company
  • Critical mistakes that business owners make when scaling… and the easiest way to identify these issues before they blow up into huge problems
  • And much more

Lauren is also sharing two valuable free resources to help you avoid dangerous legal pitfalls as you scale your business.

What you learn during this interview could save you tens – and even hundreds – of thousands of dollars.
