Start-Up Seminar: Founders Equity, Dilution Planning, and Term Sheets

January 31, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



Preparing to launch your startup involves more than just deciding on what you will be selling. The journey is exciting, long, and – hopefully – rewarding along both personal and financial vectors. Manny Stockman, Partner at venture capital investment firm Osage University Partners, will walk you through the fundamentals of how best to structure your startup to fairly divide equity amongst multiple founders, understand the impact of taking on venture investment, and the nuances of how investors structure their investment.

This seminar is open to all: students, faculty, staff, and beyond.


This in-person seminar will be conducted at: Bostock Library 127 — The Edge Workshop Room


Light refreshments will be served.
