ABOUT THIS CLASS

Crowdfunding is a great way to raise early capital and generate a following, but it is not free money. Any time you take money from outsiders there are consequences. This class will address the basic legal rules entrepreneurs should be aware of before engaging in a donation/reward or equity crowdfunding campaign.

TAKEAWAYS

By the end of this class students will:

  • Be familiar with the equity crowdfunding landscape (key players, common missteps, best practices)
  • Understand the tax implications and securities law rules related to equity crowdfunding, and how it differs from donation/rewards crowdfunding.
  • Have the tools and knowledge to prepare your startup for a legally successful equity crowdfunding campaign.


PREREQS & PREPARATION

None.
