Raising investment for startups: what does raising investment mean in practice?

Are you a Founder of a start up? Roberta Draper and Emer Hughes discuss what raising investment means in practice, including valuing your company and deciding how much you want to give away in return for investment.

In this video, Roberta Draper and Emer Hughes in our Corporate and Commercial Team discuss what raising investment for your start up means in practice, in particular how you value your company and how much you want to give away to investors in return for investment.

Our startup lawyers act for companies, investors and employees, and have particular experience of acting for founders: not only in terms of guiding them through the investment process, but also in resolving problems which may have arisen in earlier rounds. 

We also have many years of experience of advising on the legal issues which arise from running a technology business. Our aim is always to protect your rights and to allow you to realise the maximum value from your technology assets.
