    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.

    Mar. 26 2014 (Mimesis Law) -- David Perla, co-founder of Pangea3 and current CEO of Matterhorn Transactions, talks with Lee Pacchia about the rise of a 'startup culture' in legal technology. According to Perla, approximately $500 Million has been invested in legal startups as of 2013, with an additional $100 Million invested so far in 2014. Perla also notes that around 200 startups, tech-driven and otherwise, currently operate in the legal space. While Perla points out that some investors are beginning to make money in legal tech startups, the significant majority of them, just as in other industries, will fail. To some extent, Perla thinks there is a bubble in legal tech startups and that some garner excessive valuations because they tend to be perceived as more scalable than other vent...

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.

Joe is currently working on Practical Law content organized specifically for startups and small business lawyers. He is also the author of thought leadership pieces about the industry and a guest lecturer at New York University Law School, among others.

Do you want 100% of a company that makes $100,000 a year? Or would rather own 50% of a $10 million company? ►►Subscribe here to learn more of my secret SEO tips: https://goo.gl/ScRTwc Find me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/neilkpatel/ Read more on my blog: https://neilpatel.com/blog Of course, you want to own 50 percent of a company that makes $10 million a year. You know what the difference is? Venture capital. Today, I'm going to share with you how to raise venture capital. See, over my lifespan, I've raised more than $20 million. That may not seem like a lot. It's because I've learned that you shouldn't raise more than you need. Sure, some people raise hundreds of millions of dollars and then their company fails and the VCs take the whole thing. The key is with venture capital is to not raise too much, just raise a little bit more than you need. The reason I say a bit more is because things always go wrong. You may think, oh, I just need this much money, and then things will go right, I can do this and that, but things always go wrong. always add some padding. Now here's the thing that most people don't tell you about venture capital. When I first started off, I would go to VCs and pitch them like here's my idea; it's cool, it's the next best thing since sliced bread. You have to invest. And you know what they said? Oh, cool yeah, I'm interested, let us think about it, and we'll get back to you. You know what they did? They never got back. Why? Because I didn't build a relationship with them. See, venture capital is all about who you know. It's not about going out there and just raising money from random people. It's really about raising money from the right people. And what I learned about venture capital is when you build up a relationship and you get to know people, they're much more comfortable giving you money. Why? Because the idea they invested in, and they see this, is probably not going to be the idea that your company ends up with. Ideas change over time. What you first start with is rarely what you end up with. Things pivot and adapt. So people invest in those that they know. Twitter started out as Odeo. Odeo was a podcast company, and it wasn't working. Then they came up with Twitter. Podcasting. Twitter. Do you see the resemblance? I don't. The investors didn't either. But they understand ideas change. So, go to events like TechCrunch, they have conferences. Who are at the TechCrunch events? Investors. Mashable has meetups. Who are at those kinds of events? Investors. Before you pitch them, you have to get to know them first. That's the biggest mistake entrepreneurs make. People go and try to raise money, which never really happens, from random people that they don't know. And it usually, in most cases, ends up in disaster. You need to create a deck. There's a lot of amazing decks. If you go to SlideShare, Dave Mcclure once released a deck that shows you how to raise venture capital. I understand technology's changed, but the same pitch that worked back then works now. If you follow these steps, you will be better off, and you should have an easier shot at raising money. If you're not passionate, you're probably not going to get money. If you don't have a co-founder, again, it's going to be hard to raise money. VC's know you're not going to be able to do everything. If you're a business person, find an engineer. If you're an engineer, find a marketer or a design or a product person. You want to have at least two or more co-founders. Now that you've got your co-founders, you have to pitch a big idea. Ventur Capitalists are looking for the next Uber, Airbnb, eBay, Google, Microsoft; you get the point. Create something that's huge. They'd rather have you swing big and lose money than not take any risk at all. They don't want you to create a company that does $20 million a year and sells for $50 million. It doesn't do much for them. So go after a big idea, or no one's going to give you money. After you raise the Venture Capital, you should always be fundraising. Before your money runs out, raise more money. You want to have a healthy cash reserve, or else you're going to have a much harder time raising money. If you ever tried raising money or struggled out there, just leave a comment below, and I'll tell you what you did wrong. I hope this video helps you.

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.

Mar. 26 2014 (Mimesis Law) -- David Perla, co-founder of Pangea3 and current CEO of Matterhorn Transactions, talks with Lee Pacchia about the rise of a 'startup culture' in legal technology. According to Perla, approximately $500 Million has been invested in legal startups as of 2013, with an additional $100 Million invested so far in 2014. Perla also notes that around 200 startups, tech-driven and otherwise, currently operate in the legal space. While Perla points out that some investors are beginning to make money in legal tech startups, the significant majority of them, just as in other industries, will fail. To some extent, Perla thinks there is a bubble in legal tech startups and that some garner excessive valuations because they tend to be perceived as more scalable than other ventures and highly desirable among partners at large law firms in a low yield capital environment. In addition, "many more people today like the idea of funding startups...they want the opportunity to participate...they're not looking at it in the clinical P & L terms that a venture capital fund would," he says. But Perla says the increasing popularity of startup culture doesn't make him nervous as an investor. "The cream generally rises to the top, so the better funders, the better investors and the better partners usually get paired with the better entrepreneurs," he said. Asked when he expects lawyers to truly begin leveraging technology in the way they work, Perla thinks it could be a ways off. "I think we are still a decade off of significant acceleration in the rate of change," he said.

Professor Geoffrey Shields, Dean of Vermont Law School from 2004 to mid-2012 and a Herbert Smith visitor to the Law Faculty, gave a Centre for Corporate and Commercial Law (3CL) lunchtime talk on Friday 19 October 2012 on the practice of corporate law in US law firms, with particular reference to the hiring of overseas lawyers. He also discussed how those with corporate-related Masters' credentials might secure entry into investment banking, venture capital, government positions and teaching jobs. Professor Shields is uniquely well positioned to provide law students with an "insider's" guide to opportunities in the US because before becoming Dean at Vermont he was a partner and chair of the Management Committee of Gardner Carton and Douglas, a major law firm based in Chicago and Washington DC. When in pratice Professor Shields specialized in legal issues relating to not-for-profit institutions, mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, finance, joint ventures, and related tax and securities matters.
