More Than Fundraising - Benefits, Strategies, and Legal Aspects of Crowdfunding

program-related-investment-pic.jpgCrowdfunding is often thought of simply as a means to raise operational funds (which it is). But an effective crowdfunding campaign has many more benefits. Join Elevate Law & Strategy for an overview of the benefits, strategies, and legal aspects of the various types of crowdfunding. The teach-in will cover the following topics:
  • Types of Crowdfunding. What are the various types of crowdfunding, and how do they differ? Can I raise money in exchange for equity? What is the status of the proposed rules by the SEC under the JOBS Act?
  • Benefits of Crowdfunding. What are the benefits of crowdfunding beyond simply raising money? 
  • Strategies for Crowdfunding. How do I successfully structure my crowdfunding campaigns? How much money should my organization try to raise?
  • Legal Aspects of Crowdfunding. What legal requirements should I be aware of when I crowdfund?
