It's no secret that start-ups and development-stage companies found increased challenges attracting capital to fund innovation. Now more than ever, it is imperative that companies present themselves effectively and communicate their value in order to attract limited available capital. Equally important, founders and management teams must know what to anticipate when deal opportunities arise.

Please join us for an engaging seminar with industry experts as they share their knowledge on key trends and deal dynamics in the current environment.

Topics Will Include:

  • What VCs focus on in the term sheet
  • Terms that start-ups should care about (and those they should not)
  • Alternative mechanisms and variations, including pay-to-play, down rounds, and related terms
