The Startup Lifecycle – Intro to Funding

August 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

intro to funding

You’ll learn about valuation, the types of funding that are available, and how different funding types interact in the “capital stack.”

We’ll consider real-world financing case studies, including Meta, Moderna, and Glowforge. In addition to the most common funding sources, we’ll look at recent alternatives such as crowdfunding and initial coin offerings (ICOs).

You’ll also learn the role of a term sheet in financing, and we’ll walk through an example of one, clause by clause – translating the legal-ese of these often complex documents into plain English.

Matt is an attorney specializing in intellectual property and technology law. He has nearly two decades of experience representing companies at all stages of their lifecycle, and has shepherded numerous companies from founding to exit and beyond.

Note that this workshop is offered for informational and educational purposes only; attendance at the workshop or use of any provided materials does not create an attorney-client relationship and is not a substitute for legal advice.
