The workshops feature some of the foremost legal and financial experts and firms in the world guiding the participants through every step of the capital formation process from assembling the team, putting together the offering package and distributing that to investors and fund managers overseas. These one week courses are designed to not only educate and inform, but fast track the participants into getting their commercial development projects ready for funding and to avoid the legal and securities pitfalls associated with improper solicitation, distribution or structuring of the transaction. The goal is to educate and inform and see if overseas capital funding makes sense as a part of the Public or Private developer's capital stack. Participants in our U.S. workshops will be invited to join us on our overseas funding networking trips.
