I'm trying to build an eCommerce company. Company registration is not yet completed, but is under process. Now I'm planning to raise capital to begin operations as soon as the company gets registered. Is it possible to begin raising funds from funding platforms before registering a company ?
Can anyone explain me what is the processes for raising funds from fundraising platforms like Fundable, Seedrs, CrowdCube, CrowdFunder etc. And how much equity I should offer for fundraising ?
To start off with, it depends which country you are registering the company in. If its in the US, then the only way you can give equity to someone is by having a corporation first.
That said, you can still start preparing all your creative assets and pitch in the meantime. There are lots of questions with great answers already on this topic. Take a look at the related sidebar.
