“A growing number of angel investors are opening their minds to models that allow the founder to stay in control and grow at a sustainable pace,” Jenny Kassan, author of “Raise Capital on Your Own Terms: How to Fund Your Business without Selling Your Soul,” said.
Kassan has over two decades of experience as an attorney and advisor for mission-driven enterprises. She has helped her clients raise millions of dollars from values-aligned investors and raised over one million dollars for her own businesses.
Kassan earned her J.D. from Yale Law School and a Masters degree in City and Regional Planning from UC Berkeley, and she has served on the SEC Advisory Committee on Small and Emerging Companies. She also led the charge in submitting the petition to the SEC that led to the the passage of the 2012 JOBS Act and was present at the White House signing ceremony.
“[It] could be your year to design an investment offering that perfectly suits your vision for the future of your business and then go out and get the funding from the right investors,” Kassan said.
Next week, she’ll be offering a free virtual training on what you need to know if you are thinking about raising funding in 2019. Join her on Nov. 20 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (PDT). There will also be time for a Q&A. To register for this free training, click here.
