Villgro, in partnership with BHive Workspace and Gamechanger Law Advisors, brings you the Unconvention Speaker Series Bengaluru.
ABOUT THE SESSION
For first-time entrepreneurs, the prospect of raising equity from an angel/venture capital investor can be a rewarding, though daunting process. The starting point of the fund-raising process is usually where an Investor expresses its interest to invest in a startup, by providing the Founder(s) with a “Term Sheet”. Several Founders/Startups find it difficult to comprehend what terms and conditions are really important from their perspective, what terms are conditions are fairly “standard” in the venture capitalist’s/angel investor’s ecosystem and what are some of the terms and conditions where they can negotiate extensively with investors. This is where professionals like lawyers and chartered accountants can come in handy.
The objective of this session is to provide startups with broad pointers on how to navigate the Term Sheet negotiation process. Understanding the context will help Startups/Founders to focus on issues that that really matter. This helps in moving an investment transaction to closure quickly and ensuring that both parties to an investment transaction don’t get bogged down on minor issues, leading to a time-lag and unnecessary increase in transaction costs.
