Fundraising - You don't do it often. And when you get down to it, its all about the deal. We're setting up a mock negotiation for you all to witness how its done and what to pay attention to. Don't make first time mistakes.
Whether you're a first-time or serial entrepreneur, if you're really making progress, you will find yourself negotiating term sheets with an investor and lawyers. Come find out the "Do's and Don'ts" of negotiations while watching a mock negotiation between an active angel investor, startup attorney and a successful CEO. It doesn't get any better than this.
