In this discussion with Rod Turner, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Manhattan Street Capital, we discuss the for a Regulation A+ offering for raising capital for your private company. Raising money using a Reg A+ offering can be relatively quick and it can be far more flexible than a traditional IPO. It is important that you build a fundable startup and have the right information for prospective investors.
Rod: You asked about the schedule. There is the audit. There is the Form 1-A filing, which is two months, as well as marketing preparation. I would rather not go live and test the waters when you know you’re marketing it. I would go live to investors. It’s a better test. It’s real. Then there is one to four months or marketing to bring in the investment. The relatively good news is that you’re bringing in investment money right away. You can do the first closing when you’re ready.
Patrick: You can do a mini closing to get the cash.
Rod: You can do that every two weeks. It’s not an “all or nothing” thing.
Patrick: You have to get to the end zone before you bring the money in.
Rod: Right. It’s a definite transaction, as long as you’re not buying something.
Patrick: It is a big difference.
Rod: Yes, it is huge, from a cashflow point of you.
