March 19, 2020 - Law Lab Business Lunch Seminar: When Debt is Good and Equity Isn't: Finding the Balance
By: David A. Menard
Show me the Money! Obviously, financing is one of the most important tasks of a startup. Join us in this two part presentation. First, we will review traditional and alternative financing methods, including venture capitalists, angel investors, crowdfunding opportunities and government programs.
Next, hear from CEDF's Director of Education change your mindset about debt in relation to your small business. Doesn't everyone dream of being out of debt? Isn't investor money "free" because you don't have to pay it back? Can't wait to get rid of your building mortgage? Or maybe you can't wait to buy out your partner? Learn what is an intelligent balance between debt and equity for startups and established businesses and why your preconceptions might be keeping you off the right path for growth.
