Event description

Description


You decide to start a company, and are lucky enough to find investors to fund your venture. You then receive a term sheet... wait, what? It feels like you are reading another language — help! During this discussion, we will explore the mechanics of term sheets, covering the basics and some key issues such as:

  • What is the difference between pre-money and post-m­oney valuation?
  • Option pools. Time for a swim?
  • What is a liquidation preference, and why does it matter?
  • The cumulative dividend trap
  • The realities of valuations for startups
  • Anti-dilution preferences (what could go wrong)?

Afterwards, join us for happy hour!

The event is sponsored by Schwegman Lundberg & Woessner
