Corporate attorneys Ryan Schildkraut and Benjamin Klassen will present on investment models available for entrepreneurs and start-ups at the inaugural Slow Money Minnesota event.  Slow Money Minnesota is an emerging network that connects people interested in building a better local food system. 

Ryan is a co-author of the MNvest legislation, and is a strong advocate for Minnesota business. He regularly counsels start-up companies and entrepreneurs on selecting the appropriate type of entity for their businesses, drafting organizational documents, raising money from investors, hiring employees and independent contractors, negotiating commercial leases, and developing customized business contracts. After years of working with clients who felt that federal and state laws impeded their ability to raise money from investors, MNvest was born. With the goal of legalizing equity crowdfunding in Minnesota, MNvest provides for wider, cheaper, and faster access to funding for companies and entrepreneurs.  

Benjamin J. Klassen represents clients on a wide range of issues, including mergers & acquisitions, business formation and start-up financing, sales and employment contracts, and other general corporate issues.  He focuses on the financing needs of businesses at various stages of growth, from seed financing to growth by acquisition.
