The topic for this Keiretsu Academy session is Term Sheets. We will review common formats and investment terms involved with Convertible Notes and Preferred Equity financings. Special focus will be on best practices for negotiating angel investor favorable terms and understanding what terms can come back to bite if not structured correctly.
