Event description

Description

Before you even have a term sheet, it's important to do your homework so you don't get caught unprepared. In short: it's time to get rid of the skeletons in your closet before the investors come knocking for your due diligence. We'll go through the term sheet, financing documents, and closing.

Additionally, during this session, we'll cover how to manage the inside and outside counsel and investors during the process, as well as how it's changed over the past few years. And how what to do if you can find investors - but can't seem to find a lead investor.

In short: it's time to learn how to get millions of dollars and not screw it up - from term sheet to money wire. It's important to start preparing now, so that when you do get to that fundraising stage in your company's lifecycle, you're ready to go. And don't waste any time.

This event is a part of the Founders & C-Suite Track at Startup Boston Week 2019. And is perfect for companies in the Early Stage and Growth Stage.

Workshop Facilitator:

Kathy Nolan, Corporate Attorney and Client Services Manager, Shoobx
