the netpreneur community for straight talk from Jeff Osborn of
Osborn Capital on financing and building companies. What are the
four different types of venture capital financing and how do they
differ? What are the various stages of funding and what happens in
terms of valuation and dilution for the investors, founders and
employees? Jeff will address these and other issues. After
experience in the trenches as an entrepreneur followed by a
successful career as an executive with UUNET, Jeff now helps new
ventures as a business angel investor.
Since Jeff has vowed to never
cut his hair, wear a suit or get up before 10 a.m., our next
Coffee & DoughNets gathering will take place the evening of
September 20. And it is being brought to you courtesy of our event

Netpreneur Program is here to make a difference and the best way to do so is to talk with
you and hear about your successes, problems and issues affecting your business. These
informal networking and information sessions give netpreneurs the chance to exchange
ideas, experiences and knowledge. And, they give us the chance to meet you!
Think of each session as an informal
opportunity to stop in, meet us, meet other netpreneurs, and gain ideas for your
net-centric business. Registration is typically limited to approximately 250 with first
available seating given to netpreneurs and aspiring netpreneurs. The description of your
company is, in essence, your ticket to attend as space is available. If you are a
netpreneur, please make sure your company description covers the netcentric nature of your
business or your business idea.

20, 2000 event is also sponsored by UUNET's
Head Start Program.
