community-fundedA Direct Public Offering (DPO) is a term that refers to a public offering of securities by a business or nonprofit to both accredited and non-accredited investors in one or more states. DPOs can involve several different legal compliance strategies, and can be structured as debt, equity, or revenue-sharing.  DPOs are available to many different entity structures, including for-profit corporations, LLCs, cooperatives, and nonprofits.

The low cost of capital combined with the ability to raise funds directly from investors make a DPO an ideal fit for many enterprises, but is it right for yours? What factors should you consider when deciding to “DPO”? In our webinar on January 6, “Is a Direct Public Offering Right for You?”, we take a deeper dive on the key issues to consider when deciding whether to do a DPO. Join us to understand the DPO option and how you can take the next step to raise funds directly from your supporters through a Direct Public Offering.
