Berkeley Entrepreneurs Forum For Angel and Venture Capital Financing (08-28-14)
In 2014 the early stage financing environment exploded with valuations and the number of financings increasing substantially, including several multi-billion dollar fundings. By some measures the number of venture fundings in Q2 of 2014 approached levels not seen since the days of the internet bubble.
2014 also continued a number of trends from prior years: the growing influence of founders/entrepreneurs, the significant growth in the activity of seed/angel investors as well as alternative funding platforms and incubators. Please join this panel of expert angel and venture capital investors for a look at early stage investing during the past year and what the future investment environment holds. The presentation will also include a review of the key metrics for venture capital investments/exits and critical VC term sheet terms for Q2 2014. Don’t miss this thought provoking and informative session!
