Good news! Your startup has 2 investment proposals. One's offering a convertible debt investment. The other's offering to buy preferred stock. They're sending Term Sheets and want a fast answer. How do you choose? The preferred stock deal is permanent equity. The convertible note postpones a company valuation and may help you obtain more per share later after you've used the investor's money to build your business. The "devil is in the details" with term sheets. What are the pitfalls and tricks? The pros and cons of each provision? What's standard? What should you try to change and why? A good deal can lead to success. A bad deal will dilute your ownership to almost nothing. We'll discuss how to come out on top!
