Product Description

Barriers to entry continue to fall for businesses with the advance of technology and internet-based applications and services. This leads many entrepreneurs to seek capital where they find virtually everything else—over the internet. With proposed federal rules that run contrary to decades of regulatory philosophy in flux, a myriad of state regulatory gap-filling attempts, and an explosion of fundraising websites, lawyers advising capital-seeking enterprises need to know the current state of the regulatory landscape in this area—as well as be able to advise clients on the practicality and consequences of choosing one capital-raising method over another.

In this new program, leading practitioners in the field analyze the legal and business points of internet-based fundraising in a small, highly-focused, fast-paced conversational setting. Bring your questions to customize the agenda and join the dialogue.
