If you are an officer or a director and you think you already have these topics mastered, think again. Do yourself a favor and take this course.

This is the single best webinar on funding for your company.  Every CEO, CFO, and board member should take this course. You will learn most of what you need to know for public company financing in less than an hour. In addition, the webinar will save you on financings costs and help you understand all the ins and outs of public company capital raises—great value for your busy schedule and enormous value for the price.

Small-Cap Director

I have been on several small cap boards and participated in many financings. As a former CEO and corporate attorney, I thought I knew this stuff pretty well, but what I learned in 60 minutes was invaluable.  About half way through the presentation I had already decided I was going to require it for any small cap CEOs/CFOs I work with. By the end, I had expanded that to all small-cap directors. There is no substitute for hearing it from an expert.
