The Basics of Raising Capital: Private Placements 101

1h 2m

Created on February 18, 2016



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.
