How to Structure Your Capital Raise — Part 2 — Negotiating the Term Sheet Workshop

March 28, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

The Start Smart Legal Series hosts various seminars and workshops throughout the semester that cover a wide range of legal topics for startup businesses. During each event, you will be able to learn from K&L Gates’ startup lawyers and gain valuable insight on how to legally start/run your startup.

Join us for a fun negotiation exercise in which you’ll play the role of either startup or investor! We’ll begin the evening with a quick overview of the legal issues associated with investing in startups.  We’ll then divide into investor and startup groups, who will meet separately with lawyers to decide on the terms that they want. We’ll end the evening with a negotiation led by workshop volunteers playing the part of founders and investors and two of Pittsburgh’s top startup lawyers.
