What: Not your typical "Anatomy of a Term Sheet" event, this Netpreneur Coffee & DoughNets session will discuss term sheet land mines that can result in significant pain to parts of your anatomy, especially in today's financing environment. As a founder, do yourself, your team, your loved ones and your investors a big favor by attending this session and knowing this stuff - before you show up at the negotiation table.

Andrew Sherman will moderate and provide the Term Sheet 101 to be followed by real world stories and advice from Rusty Griffith, Director of Portfolio Management with Steve Walker & Associates, Michael Chasen, President and CEO of Blackboard Inc. and Kevin J. Burns, Managing Principal, Lazard Technology Partners.

Email us your questions in advance.

Why: The 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.


Cost: Made possible at no charge to the netpreneur community by the Morino Institute Netpreneur Program.
