All You Ever Wanted to Know About Term Sheets

Content - Based on the very successful in-person workshops on term sheets conducted by David S. Rose and Avi Fogel in 2011 a comprehensive 60 minute webinar will be delivering much of this knowledge again.

The live online webinar will also be recorded, for free viewing by attendees, as an ongoing source of reference, and to allow those that may have missed it, to catch up.

David S. Rose will review the "Term Sheet" body of knowledge that entrepreneurs and investors need to know, in his inimitable style and based on his experience as one of the country's leading super angels.

All attendees will receive a pre-print of the chapter on Term Sheets from David's forthcoming book Angel Investing: The Gust Guide to Making Money & Having Fun Investing in Startups, as well as an annotated copy of the New York Angels standard Series Seed term sheet.
