Funding Success - Mitigating Venture Financing Risks
Contact Email: 
Event Information: 

Startup Founders, Angel Investors and VC's all have different objectives as they position themselves as the right suitor.

About this Event

However if each party doesn't look beyond the common steps, lots of toes will be stepped on, and stumbles will delay getting to market.

Join Tim McLoughlin of Cofounders Capital, Jerel Bonner of Corralling Chaos, and Michael Kohagen of Bagchi Law, in a two-part discussion relevant to any startup in pursuit of their first venture capital raise, and the investors who back them:

Part I: Culture Costs

Many times a startup will allocate a portion of a VC's investment for recruiting key new employees for a critical role. A bad hire could cost a company as much as $50K USD. Jerel and Tim will chat about ways to create a startup's culture, and interview for a culture fit in addition to a skills competency fit. These can go a long way to mitigating a bad hire.

Part II: Interpreting the Series Seed Terms Sheet

“Interpreting and negotiating a terms sheet can be a daunting task, to ensure your firm can walk away with the deal your business needs. This includes:

Understanding the impact of pre-money valuation
Effects of anti-dilution protections
Identifying your leverage points
Take part in an audience focused discussion between Tim and Michael of what to expect, and how to approach common founders’ concerns.”
