You are a founder behind a new company with an energetic team and a unique business idea. While these are key components to growing a successful business, your next question likely revolves around how you are going to pay for it all. In the first year or two of a company, finding funding can be one of the founders’ top challenges. Furthermore, the funding that is accepted early on can have repercussions throughout the life of the company.
Join us as Matt Benson and Emily Bolton from Cook, Little, Rosenblatt & Manson discuss what funding options exist for early-stage companies, what important considerations founders should be making before accepting such funding, and how early funding decisions can impact later investments.
