They say valuation can be as much an art as a science, and there is definitely a psychology at play during capital raising negotiations.

About this Event

This session is one of our most popular workshops. It will help you understand how equity works initially and over multiple rounds as you’re raising capital. We’ll show you how you’ll end up with a smaller piece of a bigger pie, and how that’s totally okay.

We’ll work through simple examples first and leave you with a larger take away Excel “cap table”.

They say valuation can be as much an art as a science, and there is definitely a psychology at play during capital raising negotiations. We’ll run through 4 different ways of valuing your startup to give you an operating range of valuation as a base to negotiate from.

And finally, while we’re not lawyers, we’ve seen a lot of deals and we’ll give you a quick run down on Equity, convertible notes and SAFE agreements and some of the key legal deal terms you’ll see.
