Through its Bronze Level Sponsorship of Venture Cafe, Mintz will host an interactive seminar focused on Series A Funding at the Cambridge Innovation Center on June 23, 2016.

For companies approaching the end of seed funding, Mintz’s Daniel Follansbee and Eric Macaux will explore terms, trends, and traps likely to be encountered in the pursuit of a first preferred stock financing.

  • What are the characteristics of a Series A financing and how does it differ from a seed financing?
  • What are the current trends in Series A financings?
  • What common traps can you avoid in negotiating the financing?

With more than two decades of combined experience counseling entrepreneurs and emerging growth companies in information technology, energy and clean technology, life sciences and medical devices, Daniel and Eric will address these questions and many more. Come with questions!
