New CLE on Legal Issues in Startup Financing

For entrepreneurs, financing is the primary and most pressing concern. That’s because without sufficient funding, it’s almost impossible to launch and run a successful business. And many of the people starting these new ventures are new to the business world and they are often unaware of the various securities laws that apply when acquiring funding.
