SVForum & Procopio Present: The Art of the Start-up



  • Please note: This event is designed for industry companies/individuals who have already or are looking to form a start-up and is not open to other service providers. Seating is limited and registration is required.

    Program Overview: 
    For entrepreneurs, deciding to form a company or become involved with a start-up presents enormous challenges. Navigating around legal, fund raising and other issues can often seem overwhelming, and traps for the unwary or uninformed are numerous. However, successfully avoiding the most common pitfalls can make a significant difference as to whether or not a company is fundable, the sources and types of capital that will be attracted, who controls the company, the economic impact on founders upon exit, and a company's likelihood of success.

    In this half-day workshop, Roger Rappoport, Partner and Chair of Procopio's Emerging Growth & Technology Practice Group, will discuss common startup issues, developing and executing the right funding strategy, and the anatomy of a convertible debt, angel and VC term sheet, in three interactive sessions. Read more...
