Basics of Venture Capital Financing

The Consortium for Execution of Rendezvous and Servicing Operations (CONFERS) – the independent global trade association fostering the satellite servicing industry – will host a webinar presented by Craig Lang, Partner, DLA Piper, LLP (US) entitled “The Basics of Venture Capital Financing“.  The webinar will be held on Tuesday, May 7, 2024 at 1600 ET.

Program Description:  Many satellite- and space-focused founders seek out growth capital from outside investors in order to get their startup companies on a path for growth.  Every year, the U.S. venture capital industry invests billions of dollars into hundreds of early-stage technology companies.  Understanding what it takes to attract investors and get your company funded can be challenging, to say the least – particularly for founders who have not yet been through the financing process with investors.  Venture financings involve significant work, with unique terminology, and plenty of pitfalls for inexperienced founders and their startup companies.  This webinar will arm you with the basics of venture capital financing, equip you to understand a venture “term sheet” and walk you through the process of getting an investment round closed.
