EB5 Investors Magazine Q&A EB-5 for a Competitive Inner City 32 Policymakers, economic development professionals and EB-5 experts convened in July of this year at Harvard Kennedy School to mark the release of the report, Increasing Economic Opportunity in Distressed Urban Communities with EB-5. The report, written by Kim Zeuli and Brian Hull, was sponsered by the Garfield Foundation, Boston Foundation and Surdna Foundation. Zeuli is the head of The Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, a Boston-based nonprofit research and strategy organization. Simultaneously ambitious and targeted in its approach, the research surveys a wide variety of EB-5 projects around the country and narrows in on five case studies to contemplate how EB-5 funding can benefit U.S. inner cities. EB5 Investors Magazine spoke with Zeuli about the origins of the report, their findings, and the future of EB-5. EB5 INVESTORS MAGAZINE
