Thursday, September 19, 2019
1.00pm Half Day Workshop on Structuring Deals and Term Sheets at a separate $50 fee. Official NACO module.
- This interactive half day workshop is geared both to entrepreneurs and investors. A term sheet lays the groundwork for ensuring that the parties involved in an investment transaction are in agreement on most major aspects of the deal, thereby precluding the possibility of a misunderstanding. Because investment terms, company valuation, and the longer-term implications of investment terms are not “one size fits all”, it is important that investors understand the definition of terms and their application in each distinct deal. This module will provide both entrepreneurs and investors with an understanding of the purpose of the terms and conditions and their appropriate use in structuring deals to maximize return and minimize risk.
