BACK LIVE AT SKYSONG (Scottsdale/McDowell Roads)!

When business owners are attempting to grow their companies, legal issues are often put on the back burner. The natural focus is on hiring talented employees, securing customers and generating revenue.

Unfortunately, failing to do some basic legal planning can result in costly mistakes, impaired growth and even the untimely collapse of the company.

Topics for this complimentary seminar will include (among others):

  • Protecting your corporate shield and your personal assets
  • Why you must have a shareholders or “buy/sell” agreement
  • How to raise capital…legally
  • Protecting your valuable intellectual property
  • Managing key employee issues
  • Reducing the risk of litigation

Greater Phoenix SCORE – HOW TO RAISE CAPITAL…LEGALLY

December 2nd | 3-4:30 pm | VIRTUAL   [Click Here To Register]

To start or expand a business, you need capital. Raising capital, however, is one of the most difficult challenges that a company can undertake. In the current economy, investors at all levels have become increasingly risk averse, resulting in even greater competition for their limited investment dollars. And heightened regulatory scrutiny by the SEC means that compliance with securities laws has never been more important.

So, what must an entrepreneur or business owner do to successfully navigate the process?

Topics for this seminar will include:

  • Creating a business plan (i.e., how do you make money?)
  • Protecting your personal assets by forming a company
  • Selecting the right form of entity and creating a company Start-up funding
  • What it means to have partners and how to bring them in
  • Basic agreements every new business should have
  • Developing and protecting your brand
  • Building your advisory team

Vantage – HOW TO INVEST IN PRIVATE COMPANIES

January 4th | 8-9:30 am | VIRTUAL  [Registration Link To Come]

During the early stages of a private company’s lifecycle, the necessary capital comes from “angel investors” who are willing to bear high risk for potentially high rewards. As we hopefully emerge from the pandemic, those angels are looking to re-engage. This seminar presents topics including risks and rewards of private company investments; locating investment opportunities; analyzing prospective deals; negotiating favorable investment terms; protecting your investment, and the investor’s role post-closing.
