The information in this presentation should not be relied upon as legal advice. I am not an attorney and the specifics of your project, your partners, and your most likely investors are something you must discuss with a lawyer, securities attorney, and tax advisors before your create investment documentation or solicit investment. Failure to do this can result in huge court costs, fines, and even jail time. This event is meant as a primer to help you understand the fundamentals and some of the most commonly used funding options so you can better understand how to move forward on funding your project.
