From a purely legalistic perspective, Dr. Dorsaf MATRI examines the current legal framework of France on venture capital and the opportunities it presents for shari'a-compliant investments. Through in-depth analysis of the requirements of Islamic law and the framework of collective management in France, this study puts into perspective the legal structures that could provide the flexibility required to implement an Islamic venture capital transaction into French law. The findings of the author provide a clear direction, which includes the opportunities and inevitable risks, for investors who are willing to venture into the French investment arena using the Islamic venture capital instruments.

Are you planning to raise money for your business? In this video, I share a few important things to note when you're raising capital for your startup. My last 2 companies were venture backed and I've learned a lot about the world of investments and now in this video, I reveal secrets that can maximize your chance of success. + Join me on FB: http://FB.com/DanMartell + Connect w/ me live: http://periscope.tv/danmartell + Tweet me: http://twitter.com/danmartell + Instagram awesomeness: http://instagram.com/danmartell Are you an entrepreneur? Get free weekly video training here: http://www.danmartell.com/newsletter Looking to raise a round of funding? Watch my free video on Fundraising Like a Pro http://lp.danmartell.com/fundraising Hey, Fundraising is a sexy topic. And understandably so. Because when executed properly, raising capital affords you the opportunity to scale up your startup with speed. To build a global sensation, reach billions with your product, and create mass-scale impact. The very moment you accept VC funding, you’re instantly fueled by increased access to: - Top-level talent - Experienced advisors - More press than you can handle And the cash to carry out your most ambitious plans But there is a dark side. One that many entrepreneurs sadly miss when asking for capital. And unless you’re willing to take an examined look at the HIDDEN agreements you’re implicitly accepting when taking on VC or angel investments, then you’re setting yourself up for a long, frustrating journey. So let’s get into it… Now this isn’t to say that raising VC is a good thing or a bad thing. But it is totally context-dependent. And your decision to pursue venture capital MUST match up with your goals and entrepreneurial makeup. So if you’re not willing to bleed a little (agreement 1)... … and the idea of giving up control of your company (agreement 3) scares the crap out of you. Then I’d recommend you think twice before going down that path. But if you’re playing the startup game to create hyper growth (for both yourself and your company), and are willing to accept the implicit demands of VC, then it might just be the next step you need to take to start playing a much bigger game. So go ahead and watch the video now. And if you still feel like raising venture capital is right for you, then leave a comment below and let me the VERY FIRST thing you’d do with the large cash infusion. Look forward to hearing it. To scaling up (and staying sane), – Dan Don't forget to share this amazing entrepreneurial advice with your friends, so they can be inspired too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syfMR9Akxqo ===================== ABOUT DAN MARTELL ===================== “You can only keep what you give away.” That’s the mantra that’s shaped Dan Martell from a struggling 20-something business owner in the Canadian Maritimes (which is waaay out east) to a successful startup founder who’s raised more than $3 million in venture funding and exited not one... not two... but three tech businesses: Clarity.fm, Spheric and Flowtown. You can only keep what you give away. That philosophy has led Dan to invest in 33+ early stage startups such as Udemy, Intercom, Unbounce and Foodspotting. It’s also helped him shape the future of Hootsuite as an advisor to the social media tour de force. An activator, a tech geek, an adrenaline junkie and, yes, a romantic (ask his wife Renee), Dan has recently turned his attention to teaching startups a fundamental, little-discussed lesson that directly impacts their growth: how to scale. You’ll find not only incredible insights in every moment of every talk Dan gives - but also highly actionable takeaways that will propel your business forward. Because Dan gives freely of all that he knows. After all, you can only keep what you give away.

Would you like to invest in small businesses, save 30% income tax and receive regular tax-free income in the form of dividends? This is possible when you invest in a Venture Capital Trust (VCT for short). In this video we explain quickly how VCTs work. Alex Davies, founder and CEO of Wealth Club, gives high net worth investors a rapid-fire overview of what these tax-efficient investments offer the investor – what VCTs invest in, what they seek to return, how risky they are, how much you can invest, how long you need to hold them, the different kinds of VCTs, the nature of the tax-free income they can provide – and where you can go to find out more. Read more on VCTs at https://www.wealthclub.co.uk/venture-capital-trusts/ – where you can also find details of which VCTs are open for investment in the current tax year. Please note: this video is not advice nor personal recommendation. The investments mentioned are not for everyone. Capital is at risk. VCTs are long-term investments and are less liquid than mainstream investments. Tax benefits depend on circumstances and tax rules can change. If you are unsure about VCTs or any of the products we offer, please seek financial advice.

Venture Capital & Legal Tech: From Seedcamp to Start-up Success. Lawyers Of Tomorrow Podcast #10 - with Tom Wilson of Seedcamp. Stephen Turner, the host of Lawyers of Tomorrow, interviews Tom Wilson, a qualified solicitor who is now investment manager at Seedcamp, a London based acceleration fund with over 170 investments focusing on accelerating pre-seed and seed stage companies and helping them reach product-market-fit. Seedcamp is made up of a diverse team of founders, makers, operators, executors, investors and tech-enthusiasts who back world-class entrepreneurs before their success is known to others. As investment manager, Tom selects companies to invest in at their early stage of development. Knowing that Tom is a big Newcastle fan, Stephen starts off the discussion by highlighting the three factors that venture capital funds look for in any legal tech project - team, technology and traction - by way of a light-hearted analysis of the almost perfect Newcastle football team of the mid-90s. That side had great players (team), a great style of play (technology) but it didn’t quite get the results (traction). Stephen asks Tom whether the absence of one of the three factors is likewise going to be fatal to a legal tech start-up. Tom thinks that team is arguably the most important thing but that all three will eventually be essential. Tom and Stephen then discuss: • What makes up a great legal tech team? • Does a legal tech team need lawyers – known as domain expertise? • How much tech competency does the team need? • How law firms of the future may be structured very differently from now – for example as alternative business structures – as they become more involved in the business of legal technology. • Which law firms are likely to flourish in the new entrepreneurial environment. • The huge potential for legal tech funding in the future. • The action that a lawyer or entrepreneur with an idea for a legal tech solution should take. • Advice on how to build your law tech start-up team. • Seed summits. • Founders collaboration agreements. • The different stages of venture capital funding: pre-seed, seed, series A, B and C. • How investors value a company. • The extent to which the VC board representative will seek to influence the start-up via their board seat – often depending on the stage of funding. • The range of ownership percentage that founders should expect to give up during funding. • How founders should do thorough research on all funders – particularly business angels. • The perils of giving away too much ownership too early and how this can be fatal to the company’s incentive structure. • Law firms and legal tech incubators: e.g. Dentons / NextLaw; A&O / Fuse. • Law firms and innovations teams. • How lawyers can work to future proof themselves. • The importance of enthusiasm and resilience for start-up founders. • The future skills that lawyers will need – “must skills” – when the bots take over performing traditional legal tasks. This is a fascinating podcast with lots of advice and practical points for those interested in developing legal tech ideas. Thanks to Tom and Seedcamp for taking the time out to speak to Stephen.

Venture capital is an effective tool for investment in both early stage and hi-tech businesses. From a purely legalistic perspective, Dr. Dorsaf MATRI examines the current legal framework of France on venture capital and the opportunities it presents for shari'a-compliant investments. Through in-depth analysis of the requirements of Islamic law and the framework of collective management in France, this study puts into perspective the legal structures that could provide the flexibility required to implement an Islamic venture capital transaction into French law. The findings of the author provide a clear direction, which includes the opportunities and inevitable risks, for investors who are willing to venture into the French investment arena using the Islamic venture capital instruments. Though few studies have been carried out on potentials of Islamic finance in France generally, there has not been much focus on venture capital sector, which might give a new impetus to efforts toward buildings bridges across financial communities. In addition to the economic benefits attached to the receipt of an activity with high benefits, modeling a "French Islamic venture capital" could increase the attractiveness of the financial place of Paris by allowing the inclusion of a class of entrepreneurs and investors looking for ethical and cooperative alternatives for corporate finance.
