On Monday November 11 SVForum’s Venture Finance and Startup SIG and the IBM Innovation Center in Silicon Valley co-hosted an interactive panel discussion about what really goes on between a VC and a startup company before, during and after the financing negotiations.
The panelists shared negotiating tactics, discussed their experiences, and provided insight into the process of closing a venture capital financing.
Speakers include Richard Mordini of Javelin Venture Partners, David Greenbaum, Co-Founder & CEO of BoostCTR, which has received the venture capital investment, and Allison Leopold Tilley, Partner Pillsbury Law who provided the contractual and legal perspective on this process.
This was one of the biggest turnouts for any event here at the IBM Innovation Center in Foster City this year, including delegations from Colombia and South Korea made up of startup companies, VC and enterprise companies, who all wanted to learn how the startup process works here in Silicon Valley.
The steadily increasing global reach of Silicon Valley is something we here at the IBM Innovation Center are noticing all the time.
Which ones again demonstrates the important of being in the right place at the right time, just like the IBM Innovation Center at the heart of Silicon Valley.
