DLA Piper Presents: VC Term Sheet Negotiation Skit

2019-08-27 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
ATDC Community Room (Room 2525)
Address: 75 5th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA

DLA Piper Corporate Partner Jeff Leavitt will provide a brief demystification of what goes on behind the closed doors of a Venture Capital Monday morning partner meeting and overview of the key points of a VC term sheet negotiation.

This will be followed by a mock term sheet negotiation when DLA Piper’s Brian Gordon joins Jeff as they take on the roles of “hardnosed VC” and “hopeful entrepreneur” to highlight the arguments made and positions staked in real life negotiations. An example term sheet will be distributed for the audience to follow along as terms are addressed and horse-traded.

This presentation and skit is presented each year at the Venture Capital Institute, Kauffman Fellows Negotiation Module and Guayacan Venture Group workshop.

    ATDC’s "Run It by the Buyers" sessions have been created to get you real-world feedback on your sales pitch.
    Like it or not, remote selling is here to stay. A recent McKinsey study found that 90% of B2B decision-makers expect the remote, digital selling/buying model will stick around and 75% believe it is just as effective (or even more effective) than pre-COVID sales methods.
    Each month, Run It by the Buyers, gives 4 ATDC portfolio companies the opportunity to deliver their sales pitch via Zoom to a 3-person panel of Atlanta-based executives from leading enterprises and get an immediate critique with actionable tips to help you make a greater impact, ensuring that your Ideal Client (IC) will quickly see the value your product represents.
