Topic: Raising Capital in Today’s Financial Environment

Benji and Jim will share some their knowledge and experience as advisors in several billion dollars of public and private capital-raising, M&A, and technology license transactions for a wide range of clients from start-ups to public companies to venture capital funds. Their toolbox includes Crowdfunding, Revenue Sharing and FinTech with Coin, Tokens and other Digital Assets and Blockchain smart contracts, in addition to traditional venture capital, angel investments, and private placements.

Located in Midtown Raleigh, Innovate Capital Law is trade name of the law firm Verdonik & Jones, PPLC. Learn more and follow their blog at Innovate Capital Law.

New communications tools, new business practices, new technology applications and new laws are changing the capital raising world.

They are creating a capital raising environment that includes:
•New types of investors
•New investor motivations
•New types of securities
•New deal terms
•New valuations
•New deal players and advisers
•New ways to sell deals

Venture capital, convertible preferred stock and bank loans are still important, but we now have many more tools in the capital raising tool box these days. The best professionals will master these new tools. Other will ignore them and become obsolete. At FENG, we want all our members to have the opportunity to be the best.

So, don’t miss our March 11, 2020 meeting at which Innovate Capital (founded by Benji Jones and Jim Verdonik – two veteran capital raising advisers) will engage in an interactive conversation about what it takes to succeed in this new capital raising environment, illustrate the benefits of mastering new tools with some numbers crunching examples and advise how to integrate the best of traditional capital raising practices with new capital raising tools.

Speaker: Jim Verdonik & Benji Jones
