Welcome to the second installment of the LSN Summer Chapter Series. This week we’ll finish up the legal section of The Life Science Executive’s Fundraising Manifesto by covering the rest of the necessary regulatory underpinnings for your fundraising campaign: how to market your offering and potentially tap the crowd for capital.
Chapter 2, “The Legal Landscape — Crowdfunding and IPOs,” was contributed by Robert H. Cohen, Esq. This chapter provides a comprehensive look at the possibilities created for life science companies by the JOBS Act of 2012, including crowdfunding, publicizing a private offering under Regulation D, and new regulations for IPOs. Cohen takes the reader through the nuances of what is and is not permitted in terms of publicizing your offering, and also explains the different types of securities that might be offered.
We hope you enjoy this chapter. Next week, join us for “Chapter 3: Going It Alone or Choosing a Fundraising Partner.”
