Helping fund start-up companies can be a high wire act. It is exhilarating, but it requires practical and nimble approaches to balance the provision of quality legal work with the demands of limited time, money and other resources.

This course addresses various types and stages of funding, from bootstrapping to priced equity rounds. It also addresses related topics that help prepare start-ups, and best position them, for successful fundraising efforts.
