This time, our sophisticated Speakers revealed Term Sheet, Shawn asked speakers:
What are the most common terms in a term sheet? How should a founder look at a term sheet as a whole? What are common vesting terms for founders of a company? What are the advantages and disadvantages of doing a convertible note? How do term sheets different from seed to A-round? What is a founder-friendly board? And other questions within the topic.
The second part of the Battle was dedicated to the Pitch Competition.
Eleven pre-selected Seed stage Startups were presented to the venture community.
During the Pitch Competition, Judges marked each startup.
