Sometimes it takes a VC who thinks like an entrepreneur to get the ball rolling. When you are out looking for $, where do you start? What issues will you likely encounter? Where are the pot holes and how do you even find them if you don’t know where to look?
In his role as a Toronto Venture Group director (our own Mark Usher is also a long time board member), JLA Ventures Partner Rick Segal has put together a great “boot camp” idea that he’s calling Landmine Avoidance.
I’ve been asked to talk about the debt world, and will cover a wide range of topics, including: the ins and outs of term sheets, loan documentation, structural choices, pricing, ways people can bait and switch on you, the differences between US and Canadian debt deals, and so forth.
Rick is covering it from VC perspective, and Suzanne Dingwall Williams is a venture lawyer.
All entrepreneurs and CFOs are welcome. The TVG has posted details.
