If so, you'll want to attend this session being run by my friends Suzi Dingwall-Williams and Naomi Morisawa de Koeven. By giving entrepreneurs the information they need up front, Suzi and company hope it will cost them less to do the legals in later rounds.
Venture Law Line presents Friends, Family and Angels: How to Prepare and Close the Deal (and keep them happy)
A soup-to-nuts review of running a friends, family and angel financing
Wednesday, April 11, 2007
7:30 – 9:30 am.
First Canadian Place – Event Gallery
Main Floor, Yonge and Bay Street
In this 90 minute breakfast session, the team from Venture Law Line will take you through how to structure, paper and complete an investment from your friends, family and angels. We'll teach you the principles for valuing an investment and how to structure, paper and close the deal. The course will also cover special issues (receiving investments from US relatives, deal "sweeteners", RRSP eligibility). We’ll also talk you through the first 90 days after the deal is closed – how to avoid common problems in managing your investors and employees and protecting your assets. Some angels and founders will be on hand to add their views, too.
You'll leave with a CD of handy reference materials and model documents.
