How to Grow from Startup to Venture Capital

In this SCORE Santa Fe webinar, David Willbrand will demystify the jargon while unpacking and sharing everything that you need to know about fundraising for your early-stage tech startup.

He explains in accessible language what a cap table is, how it comes together, how it evolves and – most importantly – how startups raise money!

If you are a tech founder or tech entrepreneur (or thinking about making that leap), chances are you are a world-class expert in certain areas of your startup (e.g., intellectual property, product development), and have a passing familiarity with other areas (e.g., marketing, human resources). Where you likely have little-to-no experience is all the legal stuff – particularly all the factors involved in organizing, capitalizing and financing a tech startup.

Basic highlights:

  • Balance Sheets and M&A
  • Cap Tables
  • Founders Stock
  • Preferred Stock
  • Convertible Notes
  • SAFEs

Presenter: David Willbrand – At Thompson Hine, David is the Chairperson of the firm’s Early Stage & Emerging Company Practice.

David primarily works with tech and biotech:

  • Accelerators and incubators,
  • Early-stage investors and venture capital funds, and
  • Research institutions and corporate innovation teams.
