TRDA workshop on financing tech startups
FINANCING TECHNOLOGY VENTURES
A Workshop For Technology Companies
Raising Capital To Grow Their Business
If you are considering raising angel or venture capital investment for your business, then this TRDA workshop is for you!
You will learn what angels and venture capitalists look for in companies they invest in, along with the math behind the valuation offers they make. We will also dissect the language and impact to you for each element of a “term sheet”, which is the offer letter used by most angel groups and venture capitalists.
This workshop will also introduce the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) federal grant program as an option for early-stage capital, which is targeted specifically towards highly innovative early-stage technology companies.
Topics covered will include:
An introduction to angel investing and venture capital
How venture capitalists determine the value of a company
How to make a pitch to an investor
Investor due diligence and what they look for in a company
Term sheet and offer letter basics
