Friends and Family Funding for University Startups

For startups in their earliest stages, friends & family is one of the common forms of startup funding out there. This is often the best chance to secure money to launch your startup. But what does it really mean to accept capital from friends & family for your startup? How does it impact your cap table, and what are the implications for later rounds raised from VCs and other institutional investors?
Join us for a webinar on the dos and don’ts of raising friends & family funding for an early-stage university startup. Topics covered will include valuation and structuring problems, securities law, types of security, and fundraising tips. Our panel of experts include two financial accounting advisors, an IP attorney, a university startup founder and a university startup CEO both of whom will share their unique experience and lessons learned from raising a friends & family round.

Panelists:
Ian Polonsky, Attorney, Royer Cooper Cohen Braunfeld
Thomas Kim, CEO, EpiVario
Ari Wes, Founder, Ostiio
Jerry Cullins, Partner, Centri Consulting
Hanita Patel, Managing Director, Centri Consulting
