$ 59 Business, Corporate, & Securities Law In Stock

Almost every start-up needs to raise capital (unless you have a generous and wealthy uncle). Since only a tiny amount of companies are publicly traded, and an even smaller number of start-ups have an Initial Public Offering at their inception, private placement is an essential tool in the start-up lawyer’s repertoire. Attorney and Start-up Specialist Todd Kulkin is here to give you the basics of understanding and managing private placement, so that you can begin to raise capital for your clients. 


Learning Objectives: 

I.     Anticipate the need for a private placement 

II.    Understand the SEC registration requirements for the sale of securities in privately-held companies 

III.   Advise your client in self-valuation 

IV.   Successfully navigate SEC Rules 504, 505, and 506 

V.    Distinguish between different types of capital raises and where each shines 

VI.   Master the SEC private placement procedures

VII.  Support your clients through the private placement process 

VIII. Identify the different entity types as they apply to private placements
