Learn how venture investments work by actually negotiating a term sheet. In this intensive group exercise you will experience a realistic negotiation over terms including valuation. You’ll experience common pitfalls and traps and you’ll learn tricks you can use to minimise your chance of failing to raise money and maximise your chance to successfully close an investment round.
The negotiation is a great way to understand key venture investing terms and how investing works.
