The Fairshare Model

Speaker(s):  Karl M Sjogren
Summary:  The Fairshare Model is a performance-based capital structure for companies that seek venture capital via a public offering. It is called The Fairshare Model because it aligns the interests of investors and employees.

It is not crowdfunding as its often used in discussion about the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act of 2012. The model is not about raising money for projects or a new way to sell securities to “accredited investors.”

A major challenge - resolving conflicts within the law regarding “unaccredited” investors. Part of the new law makes it easier for companies to sell stock to non-accredited investors, another retains the barriers that inhabit securities regulations

We will address the basic inherent question —“Why should you like the Fairshare Model?”.
