What do social enterprises legally need to secure social investment?

This seminar will focus on the legal aspects of the fund raising process for social enterprises.
Our experienced lawyers and investment facilitators will deliver advice around the legal implication when dealing with angel investors, investing in the company individually, in a syndicate or alongside institutional investors. We will give an overview of the key documents needed in the due diligence process and to secure a smooth closing.

What you’ll learn

• How to manage your fund raise efficiently from a legal perspective.
• Practical advice on how to get the due diligence process right.
