The Mechanics of Term Sheets

  • Dell Medical School - Health Discovery Building Room 1.208 1601 Trinity Street, Bldg. B Austin, TX 78712 (map)

You decide to start a company, and are lucky enough to find investors to fund your venture. You then receive a term sheet... wait, what? It feels like you are reading another language — help! During this discussion, we will explore the mechanics of term sheets, covering the basics and some key issues such as:

  • What is the difference between pre-money and post-m­oney valuation?

  • Option pools. Time for a swim?

  • What is a liquidation preference, and why does it matter?

  • The cumulative dividend trap

  • The realities of valuations for startups

  • Anti-dilution preferences (what could go wrong)?

Afterwards, join them for happy hour!
