The Community Law and Business Clinic (CLBC) will present “The Law of Raising Money” from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20, at Flywheel in the Innovation Quarter. Light snacks and drinks will be provided. Register for tickets here.

The event is hosted by the clinic director’s Professor Steve Virgil and Jon Mayhugh. Attendees can expect to learn:

  • Ideas of how to raise capital in your business legally, without becoming a publicly traded company
  • Receive tips on how to avoid running afoul of the SEC when raising capital in your business
  • The current state of crowdfunding, and how the JOBS Act at the Federal and State level has changed it
  • Explanation of Reg A +, Rule 506, and the new rules regarding accredited investors
  • Discussion of some of the legal traps that snag some crowdfunding campaigners
  • Testing of the audience’s capital campaign IQ with a short Q and A.

The CLBC is a clinical education program launched in 2009 at Wake Forest University School of Law, and provides law and graduate business students with an opportunity to develop skills needed to practice in the increasingly complex legal and regulatory environment they will encounter as professionals. The CLBC also uses the resources and expertise of Wake Forest University to enhance community development efforts in Winston-Salem, Forsyth County and the region.
