"Raise Capital On Your Own Terms: How to Fund Your Business Without Selling Your Soul"
Based on her 10 plus years working with small businesses, Kassan knows the landscape of investment capital is far larger and more diverse than many lawyers and business advisors would have you believe. And what Kassan is talking about goes way beyond crowdfunding. There are all kinds of investors out there, with varying motives and expectations. They’re not all looking to make a killing—many investors are just as mission-driven as you. Kassan shows you how to find them, and provides a layperson’s primer on the laws and regulations governing fundraising. http://www.jennykassan.com/ www.eventbrite.com/e/funding-your-business-and-fueling-your-dream-with-jenny-kassan-tickets-49074645586
