Have you heard of Reg. A-plus? Did you know you can raise up to $50 million using this brand new option as long as you follow all the rules?

What about crowd funding? Did you know that federal rules going into effect in May 2016 are soon going to allow web offerings?


Simply speaking, the rules around startup finance are dramatically changing. If your business may need funding in the future, you may want to get up to speed on these changes.


In addition, we’ll cover the basics of incorporating a venture, registering a state trademark and avoiding investment fraud.

A representative from N.C. Secretary of State’s Office, which oversees corporations, trademarks and securities regulation in the state, can provide general rules on:

• Corp. or LLC? Picking the right entity

• Securities regulations and fundraising

• Trademarks: rules and benefits
