Workshop Topics & Schedule 

Part 1 – Financing My Early-Stage Innovation-Driven Venture

In this workshop, you'll learn how VC's typically value an early-stage innovation-driven venture. To do that we'll go through and give examples on how to forecast sales and how to set pricing, how to forecast expenses and how to figure out the amount of capital needed to finance your business. We'll also explore some of the more common sources of cash from both public institutions and private organisations.

Part 2 – Venture Capital Funding

Now that you have a grasp on how much money you need, this workshop will focus on the "deal". You'll learn what is a venture capital fund, its structure and how they operate, and what VCs look for in an early stage innovation driven venture. You'll also learn about the typical elements of a term sheet in connection with equity investments and SAFEs, and caveats when raising money. Finally, we'll explain how a capitalization table works and finish off with a brief overview of minority shareholder rights.
