Early Stage Strategy & Financing Series | Ownership, Control and Capital Raises
June 17 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
This session will help you understand the ramifications of selling equity stake in your company, and how to maintain operational control in early rounds. We will work on capital requirements and terms of an equity or debt deal. Key questions explored:
- What type of deal best suits my needs, equity sale, convertible note, or senior debt?
- How do I maintain operational control, and do I want to?
- How do I form the most effective board of directors?
This brown bag lunch event is put on by Jim Franklin. Each workshop will have a new topic. Our next workshop will be on June 24th, stay tuned for more details.
