Emerging companies are, by definition, not yet firmly established. Ballard Spahr’s Project SING program offers a select number of emerging companies access to mentorship opportunities, educational sessions, networking events, and creative alternative fee arrangements.

SING stands for Seed—Incubate—Nurture—Grow. Project SING provides its participants with the support needed to make the transition from an outstanding idea to a thriving middle-market or public company. Applications for Project SING are accepted on a rolling basis.

Through Project SING, companies receive comprehensive legal counsel with fee arrangements designed to accommodate start-up ventures. In addition to the fee arrangement, participants have access to quarterly education sessions conducted by Ballard Spahr attorneys, as well as experts from outside the firm. These experts include entrepreneurs who have founded commercially successful companies, executives with expertise on how to successfully access the capital markets, and investors who offer financing for start-ups.

In addition, Project SING participants are assigned a mentor from outside the firm who assists with financial, accounting, and business strategy matters. Project SING companies are also invited to attend Ballard Spahr networking events.
