Venture capital funding is seen as the holy grail for a startup, often improving the companys chances of a big IPO or exit dramatically. Most companies start their lives with the hope, if not the expectation, that they will eventually receive venture funding. This presentation will cover what a company should do to prepare for venture funding, what steps to take, what the venture capitalists expect & how to avoid venture capital deal breakers.
Corporate & startup attorney Roger Royse will discuss:
1) what types of companies are candidates for venture capital funding
2) the essential assets, qualities or aspects that your company must have to approach a venture capitalist
3) how (and when) you should value your company for venture capitalists
4) how you can protect yourself against dilutive rounds, losing control & being removed from management
5) how to get your company in front of venture capitalists
Please come with your questions, comments & scenarios.
