The key to a successful startup fundraising journey is mastering one of the final steps – the term sheet. Designed to outline the conditions of the investment, term sheets can be overwhelming and complex to navigate. Understanding SAFEs, Convertible Notes, what’s negotiable, and what’s not, there are a number of technicalities you want to get right.
We’re bringing together investors, a lawyer, and a founder to break down the seed-stage fundraising process and unpack the fundamentals of the term sheet. Our panel of fundraising experts will share real-world insights, tips on how not to scare the money away, whether to sign or walk away, and the steps after you’ve received your influx of cash.
The panel will also answer questions on how to avoid potential mine fields and most importantly, how to get the money in the bank.
