“So You’ve Been Given Term Sheets…What Next?” Venture.Community Event

May 28 @ 3:00 pm 5:00 pm

So you’re a founder with a scaling business and you’ve been raising for months. Finally, it seems the search is over as an Angel, Venture Capital, or Private Equity firm offers to invest in your business. Hooray! They send over term sheets with an investment proposition, an equity valuation and exit terms… What now?

How can you navigate this seldom-discussed situation? How can you protect your shares and control as a founder? How does this new raise interact with the existing cap table structure and how can you create a situation where all parties leave happy?

This Venture.Community Event will focus on the holistic picture. We will explore the perspective of the Founder, the Angel, the VC and the legal structure which needs to be carefully navigated to maximise the success of an investment. Join us to understand how each party will approach the investment structure of a raise. Gain insight into the desires of each group to best navigate the negotiation stage of your next raise.

We have potentially our best lineup yet so make sure to secure your ticket to hear each sides approach, delivered by the best of the best in their field.
