It was great to see everyone at our inaugural Meetup on September 9, and now we are excited to announce our next event - Startup Legal Workshop 101! The theme, “Startup funding options and term sheet negotiation key mistakes”, will help you understand important legal and funding matters for early stage startups and entrepreneurs who are seeking funding. During this workshop, we will help you explore the alternatives available for startups to raise capital, including both private capital (angel and VC) and public fund raising (crowdfunding), and some common types of debt and equity offerings. More importantly, we will also discuss the mistakes you should avoid during your negotiation with VCs.
We are very happy to have a fantastic speaker Brendan Davey, partner at Reitler Kailas & Rosenblatt, LLC, (bios included below) to lead the discussion. There will be a Q&A session following so please bring your burning questions! Light refreshments will be provided at the event.
We look forward to seeing you there!
To your success,
Wenwen and Lynn
