Understanding Venture Capital Term Sheets

Every month we see hundreds of startups raising funds, But there are very few founders who truly understand the importance of Term sheets to their business. In response to this, we felt it was necessary to simplify and explain the intricacies of a typical term sheet from some experienced Entrepreneurs.

A term sheet is like a marriage between your company and your investors, but with a lot less romance or open-ended trust. It dictates who gets what financially, and who gets to do what legally, in almost every scenario.

For a full guide to understanding term sheets for both investors and entrepreneurs, Join us for in-depth discussion on "Understanding Venture Capital Term Sheets" - Startup Saturday Ahmedabad's January Edition.
