    Mock Term Sheet Negotiation Event

    Holy Cow! They gave you a term sheet? Well, congratulations! In current market conditions, you're among a select group of entrepreneurs who have the opportunity to sell some equity (and eternal soul?) for capital to get their business started.

    But is it worth it? Should you sign it? Should you negotiate? CAN you even negotiate at all, without sending the wrong signal? ("Mr. VC sir, we really need that money BAD, but would you mind striking out sections 3,5,6,8,9,11 & 14? And about this signing in blood part here...") What's a struggling entrepreneur to do?

    Come see a mock term sheet negotiation, and hear from our panel of experienced veterans what you should be looking for in a term sheet. Our mock term sheet negotiators include a senior venture attorney, a venture-backed entrepreneur, and a venture capitalist.
