Thanks to everyone who joined Part One of Bailey Glasser’s two-part raising capital webinar series with lawyers Michael de León Hawthorne and Carlos Duque. Part One of the webinar featured raising capital questions and answers of all sorts -- from avoiding common new venture mistakes, to ensuring compliance with securities laws, to understanding a Simple Agreement for Future Equity (SAFE) between an investor and a company.
A replay of Part One is here.
Part Two of the series will feature a lively 30-minute exchange between Carlos, Michael, and ZenSports co-founder and CEO Mark Thomas, who will discuss his experiences in securing $6.9 million in funding to date for his popular mobile sports betting app, and the lessons he’s learned while raising capital.
Among Mark’s topics:
- Discussing why and how he secured a roadside Nevada casino
- Syndicating a round of funding without a lead investor
- Using SAFEs and convertible notes to raise capital
- Employing brokers or AngelList syndicates
- Understanding Form D filing and Blue Sky laws
Mark will also discuss the crucial role investors play in any new business. What size check earns an individual a board seat? Should investors also double as advisors?
We welcome your questions related to this special program. If you have anything specific you would like Carlos to cover, please email your suggestions to JMai@baileyglasser.com.
