Hear two presentations about the differences from a founder and an investor on who sets the valuation and deal terms?
Founder, Rory San MiguelPropeller Aero raised a series B round of $18m in June of this year. Rory has been through the process of setting the valuation and deal terms on a number of occasions. VC, Melissa Widner recently took over as CEO, Lighter Capital. She’s worked with many VC’s and helped to set the valuation and deal terms for investment.
We’ll hear two presentations, as they lay out how a founder and an investor set the valuation and deal term process. After the presentations Ian will discuss the similarities and differences in the thought process. At this time Ian will take audience questions.
Then our two speakers will move to separate break out sessions where we will continue the discussion. Rory will continue the discussion with a focus on Seed and series A and Melissa will discuss later stage and raising more.
We look forward to you joining us to learn all about setting valuation and deal terms.
