The market for early-stage capital is constantly changing and entrepreneurs seeking capital need to be sure that the offering terms resonate with today’s investors. The session discusses the key business and financial issues an entrepreneur needs to know to conduct a successful capital raise and subsequent determination of a fair market value strike price when issuing stock options under IRS 409A regulations: How much money you should raise; choosing a financial instrument (preferred stock, convertible notes and SAFE notes); terms within preferred stock and their effect on valuation (liquidation preference, participating/non-participating shares, caps, dividends), andÂ how to set the pre-money valuation. The presentation will include war stories from early-stage companies, and the session will be interactive, so bring your questions.
