Other People’s Money (5/15/23) (Bayview)

May 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Duration: 2 Hours

Before you accept a single dollar from anyone to fund the
launch and growth of your community microbusiness,
it’s important to clearly understand what that money means.

This pro bono business law workshop will help you understand:
• Key differences between trade credit, other forms of business debt,
ownership equity, grants and donations, and prepaid revenue
• How to protect yourself with fairly balanced terms for each
• How options like digital platforms and crowdfunding do – and don’t – work
• How to avoid surprises and predatory abuses in the small business sector


Although these pro bono educational sessions are led by an experienced business attorney, these programs do not constitute legal advice.


By registering for this program, you acknowledge and agree that:

  • This educational group discussion is not privileged or confidential, and does not constitute a legal consultation or legal advice.
  • Your attendance does not establish an attorney-client relationship or obligate The San Francisco Community Business Law Center (the “BLC”) or Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center (“Renaissance”) to provide any ongoing legal services or any follow-up information regarding changes in laws or regulations.
  • It will not be possible for the BLC or Renaissance to review or prepare legal documents for you, or to individually advise or represent you regarding any legal matter or legal dispute.
  • No recording or publication of BLC materials is allowed. Please do not duplicate, quote, or excerpt without specific written permission.
  • You are eligible for pro bono legal education and self-help support for local San Francisco Bay Area low-income community microbusiness owners who cannot afford to pay a lawyer.
  • Renaissance and the BLC do not make referrals to for-profit law firms or legal service companies, and do not permit any program participant to solicit or refer to for-profit law firms or legal service companies (or other for-profit professional firms).
