As an alternative to loans, we’re considering seeking investment. Is there some simple-to-understand guidance around raising capital under the new laws, which I think make the process simpler if the amount sought is under $2 million? I’ve looked and all I can find is website platforms charging fees to “train” small business owners in how to prepare an offer, for a fee, and they then promote the offer. For another fee! I’m (the GM) trained in business (GAICD), and marketing and PR (APR) so I don’t need their “training”, but I do need to be certain that any documentation we provide is within the law.And / or would a lawyer be prepared to help us, even if it’s simply checking the final document. (Although a business, we are the operating arm of a charity, and all profits go to that charity).
