Those interested in raising investment capital for their business, or those interested in making investments in businesses, may want to take advantage of the monthly due diligence/investor training provided by Plains Angels.
Plains Angels is a group of Midwest angel investors that have now funded various projects here in the Midwest. The group is actively taking applications for companies seeking investment money and it appears the quality of the companies being considered is improving each month.
This month’s due diligence session covers Classes of Stock and Corporate Structure. The presenters will discuss various rights offered to preferred shareholders and the impact of those rights over the long term, including liquidation preferences, preferred distributions, management rights, and the tax consequences of those rights for different entity types. The presentation will also discuss the impact of future capital raises on the angel investors depending on their rights.
