  • VentureSouth Headquarters 225 South Pleasantburg Drive, Suite C-15 Greenville, SC, 29607 United States (map)

Entrepreneurs face many challenges when raising capital for their companies. One crucial but sometimes overlooked detail is the impact of new funding on the company’s capital structure.

Whether funding comes as equity or debt, the savvy entrepreneur needs to understand how it will impact the ultimate outcome for all shareholders – and so needs a deep understanding of the mathematics of capitalization tables.

The Venture Carolina Cap Table Workshop is our flagship educational event. It offers entrepreneurs and investors a practical education in understanding the details of cap tables through the lifecycle of a startup venture. It includes a combination of presentations, exercises and a case study to illustrate common cap table mathematics. Among the topics covered are the impacts of: valuation, liquidation preferences, anti-dilution terms, convertible notes, and option pools & vesting.

The seminar is hosted by Venture Carolina and run by Matt Dunbar, Managing Director of VentureSouth, Board member of the Angel Capital Association, and nationally-renowned early stage company educator.

Don't worry - there will be food and lots of breaks!
