ROAD MAP OF VENTURE CAPITAL AND ANGEL FUNDING, PART 1 & PART 2, 2 CLE hours
 

Rapidly growing companies often raise capital in “angel” or venture capital transactions.  Investors provide capital for growth in exchange for carefully structured equity rights and frequently some form of governance rights.  These investors also often provide the company with industry expertise, contacts and access that may be as valuable as financial capital. These funding transactions can take a startup or more mature company to new and greater levels of growth. But they are complex transactions that can involve a dozen or more interrelated documents. This program will provide you with a real-world guide to the stages of an angel or venture capital transaction, review common documents involved in a transaction, cover the most highly negotiated provisions of those documents, and help you spot red flags for your clients.

Current state of angel and venture capital markets & trends in deal terms
