Investment of capital from outside the United States can be pivotal to next stage growth for startups. But investors from outside the United States, including domestic funds with capital sourced outside the U.S., present unique issues. Companies must anticipate that rules on foreign direct investment, including CFIUS, call for earlier diligence on potential investors and should also understand how their own business profile is viewed by the USG.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

• What is CFIUS and how can it impact a startup?
• What are the basic steps startups need to consider when raising foreign capital?
• What are the common missteps startups should avoid when taking on foreign capital?
