Early Stage and Angel Investing: Financing Terms from a Founder's Perspective

Is your startup looking for its first outside investors?  Unsure about giving equity?  Convertible Notes?  Should I just bootstrap instead?

If so, then please join Chris Kiyan and Matt Hyde from Cooley LLP at Galvanize on Wednesday, March 24, 2014 at 6:00 pm, where Chris and Matt will be giving a presentation on angel and early stage investing.  They will discuss financing alternatives, focusing on convertible debt and seed equity terms and the legal and business issues that typically arise with these types of financings.  They will also discuss what factors a startup company should consider when considering outside investors and the tradeoffs involved with choosing one financing method over other alternatives.

    Great information on legal aspects, the trends, how things really work. Need more of these to help entrepreneurs.

    The ultimate question after any informative meetup like this is "did I learn something that will change what I do in the future?" Here it was a resounding yes, I definitely learned things I didn't know about convertible debt and the other issues raised, and what mistakes could be made that would poison future fundraising rounds. And not to hire an estate attorney from Ohio to do startup work.

    Any suggestions where to find some info prior to the discussion tonight? Any docs available from the speakers now?

      Sorry, I didn't get a chance to reach out to the speakers until now. I think we'll have hold off until the meeting, but I'm sure they'll be happy to make their materials available after.
