CBA SKILLED LAWYER SERIES 2017
Business Finance for Lawyers I: Raising Seed Capital for a Startup
Early stage startups often seek legal advice before they begin raising seed capital. Lawyers who represent these types of companies need to understand the mechanics of traditional financing options and emerging trends. This session will explore the legal and business considerations for accessing seed capital, from both the company founder and investor perspectives.
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Understand the legal and business terminology related to startup finance
- Appreciate the interests and objectives of investors during the early round stage of financing
- Assess the key tax and securities considerations, and when to seek advice from other professionals
- Apply best practices for dealing with different types of financing options, including friends, family, angel investors and equity crowdfunding
This is the 3rd session of the Legal Lifecycle of a Business webinar series.
