VC DAY: Leveling the Playing Field: Understanding Term Sheets & What Is Being Negotiated
VC DAY brings together investors and startups to help founders learn about Venture Capital and the process, tips, and tricks to be successful raising capital.
Session 4: Leveling the Playing Field: Understanding Term Sheets & What Is Being Negotiated
Once a startup has attracted investors, it’s time to discuss the term sheet and the important elements of the fundraise itself. Most VCs know this process, the terms, and what to negotiate on well, but startup founders don’t. In this session, startups will develop a deeper understanding of what’s being negotiated, what’s standard (and what isn’t), and what to optimize for in the term sheet process.
