Webinar. Taking your company to USA: fundraising, adapting to the option schemes and main issues to keep in mind

Place: MS Teams Live event
Time: 16:00-18:00 (Baltic time), April 29, 2021
Working language: English

Baltic start-up ecosystems have developed rapidly and normally it is not required for companies to redomicile in order to attract foreign capital. However, founders still from time to time consider registering their companies in the United States and raise funds there.

Are you considering bringing a US investor onboard or “flipping” your start-up to the US? Are you wondering about the different option schemes and tax risks/opportunities involved and wish for roll-overs to be as painless as possible?

If so, we invite you to join our webinar on 29 April at 16:00 to learn more about the opportunities and risks related to establishing a company in the US, or attracting US investors. You will hear about the relevant legal aspects from Sorainen experts, Baltic start-up representatives who have been down this path, as well as from a representative of a global law firm Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP who co-hosts the event.

You can ask questions during the event, but to make sure your question gets answered, we invite you to send your questions in advance via the registration form.

The webinar is free of charge, but registration is required.
