Description

Equity remains elusive so tech companies are turning to creative financing sources.  Funding vehicles emerge or re-emerge to meet entrepreneurial growth requirements.  What are these options and how have these funds adapted to current liquidity challenges? 

In this T3 session a panel of General Partners will share the funding options they provide and explain the differences between traditional venture investors and each of these unique funds.

Topics to be discussed:

  • How do the valuations of these funded deals vary from those of traditional sources?
  • What is the profile of an investment for each of these funds?
  • Describe unique term sheet requirements.
  • How do each of these funds source investments?
  • What is the typical due diligence process?

Speakers:

  • Dennis P. Cameron, Founder and Managing Director, Eastward Capital Partners
  • Andrew Clapp, Managing Partner, Arctaris Capital Partners
  • Matthew Growney,  Founder and Managing Partner, Rudyard Partners
