Looking to finance your startup? Curious about common financing structures for early-stage startups? Come hear from Brady Berg, Co-Chair of the Venture Capital and Emerging Companies practice at Mintz Levin who will delve into these topics. During this session Brady will provide an overview of financing structures commonly used to finance early-stage startup companies.  Mr. Berg will review and discuss convertible note financings, priced equity financings (commonly referred to as “Series Seed” or “Series AA” financings) and other less common structures.  The discussion will cover the pros and cons of each structure and standard documentation.  Mr. Berg will also share real-life “war stories” and take questions and answers from the audience.
