Seed Deals: How to Grow from Startup to Venture Capital
Willbrand David

Thompson Hine, Early Stage & Emerging Company Practice Chairperson

In this “ChalkTalk” session, David Willbrand will demystify the jargon while unpacking and sharing everything that you need to know about fundraising for your early-stage startup.

He explains in accessible language what a cap table is, how it comes together, how it evolves and – most importantly – how startups raise money! If you are a founder or entrepreneur (or thinking about making that leap), chances are you are a world-class expert in certain areas of your startup (e.g., intellectual property, product development), and have a passing familiarity with other areas (e.g., marketing, human resources). Where you likely have little-to-no experience is all the legal stuff – particularly all the factors involved in organizing, capitalizing and financing a startup.

Basic highlights:

* Balance Sheets and M&A

* Cap Tables

* Founders Stock

* Preferred Stock

* Convertible Notes
