New Venture Law  - Startups

The Silicon Valley is the global center of innovation.   The Law Offices of Mark Ruiz has helped several Startups choose the proper entity form, as well making sure that the founders avoid common mistakes such as failing to file an 83b election on time so that they are not taxed by the IRS when the values of their shares sky rocket on paper.

We also help startups with Funding strategy.  Many people believe that the only options for funding are attempting to raise funds from Silicon Valley Angel Investors or Venture Capitalists.  While attracting capital from Silicon Valley Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists  is certainly one approach that makes sense for certain types of entrepreneurial ventures, often times entrepreneurs find that there are other options to raise capital besides the traditional approaches.  These include, but are not limited to raising capital through a private placement memorandum and crowd funding.
