How to Raise Capital to Start or Expand Your Business

Raising capital is one of the most difficult challenges that a company can undertake!

You need capital to start or expand your business.  In the current economy, investors have become increasingly risk adverse, resulting in even greater competition for their limited investment dollars. And heightened regulatory scrutiny by the SEC means that compliance with securities laws has never been more important.  

This workshop discusses what an entrepreneur or business owner must do to successfully navigate the process.  Topics will include:

  • Determining a company’s capital requirements
  • Identifying those who can satisfy those requirements
  • Defining the terms of the equity offering
  • Understanding what it means to have investors
  • Complying with federal and state securities laws
  • Avoiding common pitfalls
  • Strategies for increasing a company’s chance of success
