Read a Term Sheet Like a Pro!

Congratulations!
Your Startup is on the verge of getting funded, and you feel bombarded with terms such as: 
  • SAFE
  • convertible note
  • preferred shares
  • pre-money
  • post-money
  • liquidation preference
  • drag-along
  • anti-dilution
  • voting rights
You're familiar with these terms aren't you? Are you? What impact will they have once the investor is on board? Will you stay in control of your company? Which terms are most important to you? 

Join us for this dynamic, in-depth and essential workshop on Term Sheets facilitated by David Willbrand, Early Stage & Emerging Company Practice Chairperson at Thompson Hine. David is also a superstar educator, teaching “Mergers & Acquisitions” at the University of Michigan Law School, “Startups, Venture Capital and Private Equity” at the University of Cincinnati College of Law, and a lecturer at the nationally-ranked Miami University Institute for Entrepreneurship. 

David will provide us with:

An overview of the funding round legal process
Guidance selecting the right Terms for the entrepreneur
Guidance on protecting your startup from adverse effects
Tips on Term Sheet negotiations 

Whether you started fundraising or are planning to raise funding from angel investors or early stage venture funds, you do not want to miss this workshop!

David Willbrand
Venture Capital & Emerging Company Attorney

Venture Capital & Emerging Company Attorney

At Thompson Hine, I am the Chairperson of the firm's Early Stage & Emerging Company Practice. I primarily work with tech and biotech:

• Entrepreneurs and emerging companies,
• Accelerators and incubators,
• Early-stage investors and venture capital funds, and
• Research institutions and corporate innovation teams.

Prior to joining Thompson Hine, I worked in the software industry, holding the dual role of CFO and General Counsel at a series of venture-backed companies. Prior to that, I practiced law in Boulder, Colorado.

I combine broad and deep legal knowledge with real-world business and transactional experience.  I drive, facilitate and close deals.

I graduated from Harvard University (BA) in 1992 and the University of Cincinnati College of Law (JD) in 1996, where I was Valedictorian and also the Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review.

I teach “Mergers & Acquisitions” at the University of Michigan Law School (Go Blue!).

I also teach “Startups, Venture Capital and Private Equity” at the University of Cincinnati College of Law (Go Bearcats!). Prior to that, I taught “Agency & Partnership” at UC. I also serve on its Board of Visitors.

I am a lecturer at the nationally-ranked Miami University Institute for Entrepreneurship (Go RedHawks!), where I am also serving as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence for the 2018-2019 academic year.

I am the Chairperson of the Advisory Board for the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Northern Kentucky University (Go Norse!).

Last but not least, I am very active on LinkedIn, posting frequently on matters of entrepreneurship, technology, economics, culture, self-improvement and, on Fridays, music!
