Panel 1: Legal considerations related to fundraising with US investors and flipping your company to the US
Panel 2: Option solutions available for start-ups onboarding US investors
What we talked about
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 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.
Sorainen – connecting legal experience with innovation.
