Direct Public Offerings (DPOs) - A revolutionary approach to raising money in challenging times without Angels, VCs, or Banks
Friday, October 29th
Jenny Kassan, CEO, Cutting Edge Capital
Jason Gore, Partner, Green Ladder Funding
The initial presentation of this topic on 9/27 in Berkeley was so popular that we decided to offer it again for those who couldn’t attend and those who just want more!
A Direct Public Offering is a process for companies -
but especially green, sustainable, and other value-driven companies - to raise capital from like-minded investors.
Most entrepreneurs seek financing from banks, VCs, and angels. While these funding sources can work for some companies, they can also be problematic (we’ll briefly discuss why at this event).
There’s a better way. In this knowledge-packed event, you will learn how to raise money using a little-known set of state and federal laws which allow companies to advertise and market offerings directly to the public.
Just as the Obama campaign illustrated that it is possible to raise millions from individuals rather than relying on large corporate donors, entrepreneurs are using Direct Public Offerings to raise large sums from many small investors.
The ability to advertise directly to the public makes it possible for both startups and existing companies to reach affinity investors and raise money faster and cheaper than resorting to banks, angels, or venture capitalists, while staying true to their mission and values. And the best part is that you maintain control of your company and the funding process.
In this 1-1/2 hour webinar, with time for Q&A, you will learn practical rubber-meets-the-road tools to:
• Reach a new, untapped pool of high-probability investors
• Structure your deal with 3 insider tricks-of-the-trade you won’t learn anywhere else
• Close investors in 5 working days by making an investment offer that investors can’t refuse
If you have a green, sustainable, or triple-bottom line business, and need capital to implement or expand it, this webinar may reveal a new avenue for you to successfully raise capital.
