Crowdfunding to Raise Business Capital

Crowdfunding to Raise Business Capital

Presented by the Business Law Section at the NYSBA Annual Meeting in New York City, January 27, 2016.

Crowdfunding: How to Succeed in Business After Really Trying to Raise Capital

All the general business lawyer needs to know about Crowdfunding but is too busy to ask

1.5 credits in Areas of Professional Practice for both experienced and newly-admitted attorneys
(Those who attended the live presentation are not eligible to receive credit twice)

So your client wants to use Crowdfunding to raise capital . . . A practical presentation in the form of a client conference to explore how businesses can
raise capital under the SEC's new crowdfunding regulations. This presentation is designed primarily for the general business law practitioner representing
small businesses or small investors.

Cost:

NYSBA Business Law Section or Corporate Counsel Section member: Free
NYSBA member: $50
Non-member: $75

Not a Business Law Section member? NYSBA members can join for only $25 to access this program for free. Join online or call the NYSBA Member Resource Center at 800-582-2452, M-F, 8am-5pm).


Learn how to answer your clients' questions when they read about crowdfunding in the newspaper and come to
you for answers, whether your clients want to raise capital or invest in someone else's
offering. For the issuer who wants to open a restaurant, buy real estate, market a new
invention or engage in some other business that needs capital: How much can they
raise? What information do they have to provide? How does the selling process work?
What are their ongoing disclosure obligations? Is this a panacea? For the investor who wants to buy in at the ground floor: How much can they invest? What disclosures will
they get now? What must the company tell them in the future? Is investing in crowdfunded deals especially risky? (Broker dealer and portal registration, FINRA issues
and similar matters are left for another day.)
