The Cost of Raising Capital

This week, Attorney Michael Brette, Founder of Small Cap Equity Advisors and author of Raising Capital for Your Business, discusses the true cost of raising capital through equity crowdfunding, private placement, and Regulation A-Plus. We learn about the type of fees you should expect when raising capital with each of these fundraising offers and why it’s critical for entrepreneurs to hire competent SEC council. 

He explains why many entrepreneurs using platforms like Indigogo and Kickstarter often fall short on achieving their fundraising goals and how equity crowdfunding differs from raising capital through Regulation D506(c) private placement. He also explains why entrepreneurs should engage broker-dealers to successfully raise capital.
