NYC Startup Funding
What’s the biggest hurdle most people face when starting a business? If they actually have a marketable idea, then their main issue becomes startup funding. In addition to the necessary money to pay the bills and purchase inventory, you’ll quickly find out that even filing for company formation isn’t free.
Whether you’re an established business or just starting out, you’ll need help in the area of finance. As is the case with every other aspect of getting your business going, the law firm of Fisher Stone is prepared to help.
Angel and Venture Capital
Unlike angel investors, venture capital usually comes from large firms. These firms get money from investors who, in turn, get money from foundations, corporations, pension funds and other larger sources. Venture capital is essentially the opposite of an individual angel investor.
A law firm cannot provide funding to get your business started or keep it going, but at Fisher Stone, we can guide you through the process of gaining this funding. We understand this endeavor can be difficult if you’re not used to it, so give us a chance to help you through it.
Getting money from angel and capital investors isn’t as simple as just asking for it. Just as is the case with formation, there’s going to be a bit of paperwork, and term sheets are your first step. Term sheets lay out the – you guessed it – terms of investment.
This is a contract between you and your investors that lays out all the rules for investment on both sides. It’s essential that you have our corporate attorneys help create these term sheets to ensure you’re not being taken advantage of.
