S corp and liquidation preferences?

I am a business owner who recently incorporated as an S corporation. I am interested in learning more about liquidation preferences as I am considering bringing on additional investors to help fund the business. I want to understand the implications of liquidation preferences on my ownership and the rights of the new investors.

An S-Corp has some limitations here (such as no more than 100 share holders and only one class of stock). Depending on the control that you seek to retain in your business, you may want to transition to a full C-Corp, restructure preferred (voting) shares from equity shares, and manage your business governance (Board of Directors, Officers, Resolutions, etc.) in a way big investors will find compelling.
