Orissa International's involvement in the US EB-5 program began in 2008. Orissa International's founder, Mr. Sarath Menon, was attending an annual meeting in Pennsylvania in his capacity as the state's representative in SE Asia, when he learnt of the US EB-5 visa program and the state and the city of Philadelphia's designation as regional centers approved by USCIS to offer projects for investment under the program. The state authorities introduced him to the founder of CanAm Enterprises, Mr. Tom Rosenfeld, which was the firm that was managing the two regional centers in Pennsylvania. In 2010, Orissa International was appointed by CanAm Enterprises to promote the EB-5 Immigrant Visa program in the region and the projects available in the CanAm managed regional centers in Pennsylvania, New York, Los Angeles, Hawaii and Florida.

CanAm Enterprises, LLC (CanAm), based in New York, has more than 25 years of experience in promoting and administering private and government immigration-linked investment funds. It has designated or re-affirmed six Regional Centers that have cumulatively raised $1.6 billion in EB-5 capital for more than 45 projects, representing over 3,000 immigrant investor families.

CanAm is currently the market leader within the US EB-5 program in terms of the number of investors that have received their I-526 and I-829 approvals.
