About This Class
Money makes the world go around, and can also help you take your startup to the next level more quickly. Access to capital cannot only help accelerate product development and sales, but in many cases, partnering with the right investors can influence the trajectory of a business. So what does equity mean and how to split the equity pie with investors?
This session will help students understand the equity jargon, how equity works initially and over multiple rounds of capital raising, and how to retain value and control. We’ll show you how you’ll end up with a smaller piece of a bigger pie, and how that’s totally okay.
We’ll also discuss how valuations work for startups and walk through a cap table spreadsheet that you can use when planning multiple capital rounds.
