“Cash is King”! Wer sich mit VC-Investoren auf eine Bewertung seines Unternehmens geeinigt hat, hat einen großen Schritt getan. Doch bevor das Geld fließt, müssen die Verträge zur Venture-Capital-Beteiligung abgeschlossen werden. Was im Termsheet noch so einfach klang, scheint nun oft komplex.
Gründungsgesellschafter fragen sich oft: Ist das wirklich Standard? Muss ich unterschreiben? Was kann man verhandeln, ohne den Deal zu gefährden? Wie ist die Sichtweise der Investoren? Das Seminar “Beteiligungsverträge verhandeln” vermittelt Teilnehmern, wo und wann es sich lohnt nachzuhaken, aber auch welche Standards zu akzeptieren sind.
Wir nehmen uns gemeinsam eine gesamte Beteiligungsdokumentation vor, sodass keine Fragen offen bleiben.
