Seed and Angel Round Legal Documents Primer – Nov. 11th

What is the difference between common stock, participating preferred stock, non-participating preferred stock, bridge notes, and convertible notes with valuation caps?  

We will be explaining these startup financing instruments and more at our next Startup Law Talk Workshop at East Side Incubator on November 11th.

Founders need to understand these documents to raise funds from friends and family, angel investors, or venture capital firms.   We will give a brief overview of the fundraising process, then focus on the contractual and supporting legal documentation involved when you sell stock or other types of equity to investors.  Our overview will cover preparation of the Term Sheet, the Cap Table and the Purchase Agreement.  We will also cover the federal and state securities laws that regulate these types of private placements and what it takes to comply.  Lastly, we will give a brief update on what is happening with the JOBS Act and crowd funding.

East Side Incubator is located at 2711 152nd Ave NE – Building 6, Redmond, WA.

Networking Starts at 5:30.  Lecture and Discussion from 6:00 to 7:30.

Workshop is free, but register through
