For emerging growth companies, financing can often be the most challenging stage of their development. Preparing for a financing, convincing the right partners to invest, and negotiating terms can be a distracting process for founders.

Please join Foley, Chicago venture capitalists, and leaders from growth companies, who will candidly share their financing insight and lessons learned.

Panelists will address a variety of topics, including:

  • Considerations in choosing the right investor or group of investors
  • How to approach venture capitalists and maximize company valuation
  • Tips for choosing which issues to negotiate and the tone of negotiations
  • Structural issues to avoid in financings
  • Maintaining investor relations post-financing

Panelists include:

  • Eddie Lou, CEO, Shiftgig
  • Bret Maxwell, Managing General Partner, MK Capital
  • Guy Turner, Partner, Hyde Park Venture Partners

A networking cocktail reception will immediately follow the panel discussion.

There is no cost to participate in this program; however, pre-registration is required. For additional information, please contact Katie Egan at kmegan@foley.com.
