|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on October 12, 2021 at 9:00 am

This 2-part session will help you understand the various types of capital your business may require and identify sources of obtaining it.

Capital Strategy

Starting to look at raising money? Have your business plan / financial model and identified the need, amount, and timing of your cash requirements?

This Capital Strategy session will help you understand the various types of capital your business may require and identify sources of obtaining this capital. We examine the impact of bringing more owners into the business (“dilution”), key elements of creating more enterprise value and will explore the process and key terms of venture capital financing, convertible debt, and SAFE investments. By the end of the session, you will have a broad understanding of the various stages of the capital lifecycle and assess what type of funding you will look for. You will have the opportunity to test scenarios that may impact your ownership dilution, identify the key milestones for your business, and walk through a sample VC term sheet with the goal of understanding the key aspects that may be important to your business.
