We are a US-based tech startup raising our seed round. We may receive an offer from a foreign investment firm (family office). Does their foreign status in any way complicate our fundraise or cap table? Will other investors care, now or in the future?
If you're structured as a C-corp (which, if you're going to raise venture capital, you should be), then it shouldn't matter. Most VCs have foreign LPs. If you're an S-corp, it can be a problem due to limitations around who can own shares. Also if you're doing government work, it could be a problem. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it.
You have to be careful about compliance.
