Beginning in mid-2016, startups will have a new option for raising capital: crowdfunding up to $1M by selling securities to anyone through online Funding Portals. In this program, Ben Hron of McCarter & English will explain how crowdfunding will work, how it differs from existing options for raising capital, and why it may, or may not, be a good option for your startup.
Ben Hron (http://www.mccarter.com/Benjamin-M-Hron/) concentrates his practice on advising private companies, most in the life sciences and information technology industries, on general corporate matters, angel and venture capital financing, mergers and acquisitions, securities law compliance and strategic collaborations. He also represents investors in connection with the financing of private companies. Ben has extensive experience working with entrepreneurs and emerging companies, often getting involved when a business is still in its infancy and helping guide the founders through the formative early stages of their company’s development. Ben also co-chairs the McCarter & English seminar series for entrepreneurs at the Cambridge Innovation Center.
