Finding a few early backers to support your company is a key to the success of any startup, but taking money from those backers comes with risks and responsibilities. In this program, Rick Lucash and Ben Hron from McCarter & English will discuss different methods of raising seed capital, how to effectively target and approach seed stage investors, keys to minimizing legal costs, and common pitfalls and how to avoid them.
Topics will include:
• Rewards-based crowdfunding
• Equity-based crowdfunding
• Convertible Debt
• Series Seed Preferred Stock
