Currently, we are being given term sheets and offers for investment for our company. This is an exciting but scary time. I feel a deep privilege to have to even be concerned about these issues. A few years ago, if anyone offered us hundreds of thousands of dollars I would be jumping for joy.
Now, I know that money doesn’t come free. And, giving up equity in your company, especially at an early age can be the most expensive money.
Keeping that in mind, I am doing some research on how we can best select our investors. This ranges from everything to getting the valuation you want to laying out terms for expected returns and more. Some of these feel pretty intense and arrogant of us, but because we are a company that wants to do good for the world a bad decision can cripple that mission.
