Silicon Valley Decoded - What You and Your Portfolio Companies Need to Know
Our webinar, Silicon Valley Decoded, is designed to help you better understand and appreciate Silicon Valley—including the more subtle aspects of the Valley that are, in fact, hidden in plain sight. You will learn about Silicon Valley best practices, and about the Valley’s unique vantage point for evaluating startups. You will understand the rules that can and should be broken by entrepreneurs, and the value of experimenting and iterating until the entrepreneur either find success, or run out of money and fails. The webinar will also address key questions such as “what does it take to be successful in Silicon Valley and can companies find success if they remain outside of the Valley?” Our guest has extensive experience working in Silicon Valley as well as helping entrepreneurs in more than 40 countries around the world.

Cap Tables and Beyond!
Few things impact the final payout to investors more than the legal rights of the securities they own. Understanding the legal complexities and tracking the changes over the company’s life-cycle thus becomes crucial. Companies and investors have historically used Excel spreadsheets to manage their company ownership (referred to as the “Cap Table”), but there are more complexities that an investor should consider than just their percentage of ownership.
Led by Keyvan Firouzi of Gust Equity Management and Bob Mollen of Fried Frank, this webinar is an excellent primer for new angels and a refresher for those more experienced.

Impact Investing – Going from Interested to Doing
Investors of all kinds are increasingly interested in the opportunities offered to invest in line with social and environmental values and outcomes in mind. But all too often there is a disconnect between interest in impact investing and getting to a first deal. This is often due to a fear of “getting it wrong” or struggling to incorporate a third key metric—impact—along the risk and reward axis. This webinar will offer practical advice regarding how to assemble a “quick and dirty” strategy to take the first concrete steps as an impact investor which can then serve as the basis for a long-term approach. The webinar will aim to answer the following questions:
– What are my motivations and values?
– What is my impact investment thesis?
– What are my investment preferences?
– How do I find and choose investments?
– How do I ensure the success of my investments?
