Roadmap of Venture Capital and Angel Funding - Part 1

Description

Rapidly growing companies often raise capital in "angel" or venture capital transactions.

Investors provide capital in exchange for carefully structured equity rights and frequently some form of governance rights. Investors also often provide the company with industry expertise, contacts, and access that may be as valuable as financial capital. These funding transactions can take a startup or more mature company to higher levels of growth. But they are complex transactions that can involve a dozen or more interrelated documents.

This program provides a practical guide to the stages and documentation of an angel or venture capital transaction.

Part 1 topics include:

  • Current state of angel and venture capital markets & trends in deal terms
  • Review of the suite of documents involved in most funding deals
  • Methods of valuation and their impact on successive stages of investment
  • Reviewing or drafting terms sheets – pitfalls and opportunities
  • Angel investing – equity v. debt, common terms, impact on later venture capital funding
