While VCs have probably seen and dealt with Term Sheets on numerous occasions, it’s likely that as a founder, you rarely, if ever, come across one before. However, understanding term sheets is essential to coming from a position of strength in the negotiations process and ensuring you make the right decisions for your business.

So what exactly is a Term Sheet and why is it important for you to understand what a “good” term sheet looks like? To put it simply, the Term Sheet is a document prepared by your investor to record the main terms and conditions of the deal. This paper will more often than not form the basis of other legally binding documents going forward. And if you are not prepared to negotiate this with your VC, you could easily end up with the short end of the stick.

We have just the session to get you started on the ins and outs of negotiating term sheets! Hear from our speaker to understand the basic terms, how they affect you, and how to land the best possible deal for your startup.
