About

This online course is for entrepreneurs and small business owners who are considering using Oregon’s new Community Public Offering (CPO) to raise capital from their community.

On January 15th, 2015, new Oregon securities crowdfunding law was passed. On January 22nd, Hatch Innovation helped launch the first nine companies to make use of this law, as well as the platform on which people can become local investors: HatchOregon.com.

This course will provide an overview of the new law, and then spend time answering attendees’ questions about how entrepreneurs might use Oregon’s new Community Public Offering (CPO). Entrepreneurs may raise up to $250,000 from Oregon residents.

You will learn:

  • If a CPO is right for you and your business
  • Costs of raising capital this way
  • The time commitments required for a successful raise
  • The technical requirements of the rules (disclosure documents, business plan review, legal compliance)
  • What the Hatch Oregon platform offers
  • What the Investor Ready accelerator offers
  • The presentation is approximately 1.5 hours, with 30 minutes available for Q&A. You will leave with a good understanding of the time commitment and costs involved with a community public offering, as well as how far along you are on the path to readiness.
