Link visible for attendees

Join Jeff Erickson of Forecastr and Will Buckstaff of Carta to discuss SAFE and Convertible Note financing rounds. Founders often opt to raise via one of these early stage financing instruments due to lower administrative burden, but there are many intricacies and best practices of these financing vehicles that can heavily impact founder dilution for later financing rounds. During this session, you'll learn about the different types of SAFEs and Convertible Notes along with the associated terms + best practices.
