Equity Crowdfunding

Technology and other firms have been changing the way they do business. For your new business, you may be interested in:

  • product crowdfunding (like Kickstarter or Indiegogo);
  • equity crowdfunding through a funding portal;
  • adding public benefit (b-corporation) clauses to your incorporation; or
  • using an alternative IPO to take yourself public.

We think there is a new model of business emerging here and we develop legal and business strategies to enable it.

Alternative IPOs (like Google)

Venture Capital
