Entrepreneurs are faced with many difficult decisions when starting a new business enterprise.  Foremost amongst them is how to finance the early stage operations of the business.  For those entrepreneurs contemplating a venture capital investment, several important questions need to be closely considered, including: What is the proper valuation for my business?  What percentage of my company should I sell?  How much control should I relinquish?  What is the proper composition of my Board of Directors?

We have gathered a panel of seasoned venture capitalists that will discuss these and other issues and will share invaluable insight to entrepreneurs preparing for a fundraising.

Please join us for a:

  • Presentation and review of data regarding 2014 Series A financing activity
    and preferred stock terms.
  • Discussion of VC/start-up trends in the Boston market including valuations,
    deal terms and “hot” industries.
  • Review of “Dos and Don’ts” for entrepreneurs starting businesses and seeking venture capital investment.
  • Forecast of financing activity for 2015.
  • Open and interactive Q&A session with panel of experts.

Come hear the panel’s thoughts on these and other issues pertinent to entrepreneurs and then network at the Venture Café after our program.
