A startup business is often floated on its owners’ initial capital contributions, as identified in the organizational documentation, until such time where either: (i) more capital is needed to continue the business; or (ii) the business has reached a stage, by design, where a substantial capital injection is needed to grow the business. The solicitation of such funding, more often in the later case, goes through periods called “venture rounds” by which investors are sought to either loan the business money or purchase an equity stake outright. Successful fundraising depends on appropriate incorporation, a sound business model, and an effective means (colloquially, a pitch) to “sell” the investment. The process of reaching out to potential sources of capital, or merely entertaining family-and-friends investors, is as much a marketing effort as it is a legal exercise in protecting your business and your interests therein. We provide counsel to business, nascent and established, which seek to either secure or expand their operations through loans, equity purchases, or other arrangements.
