OEN Westside PubTalk: Demystifying the Term Sheet


***Registration is closed. We will take walk-ins at the door!***


What’s a term sheet, anyway? A term sheet is “a non-binding agreement setting forth the basic terms and conditions under which an investment will be made,” according to Investopedia.

When it comes to early fundraising, all entrepreneurs need to understand the basics of a term sheet and how it impacts their business. Term sheets can vary widely, which adds to the mystery of how the terms might impact the equity holdings and valuation of a company. Our panel of experts will discuss the critical elements of a term sheet and offer their perspective on best practices.

Term sheets don’t have to be so mysterious! Join us to learn more.
