WEBINAR | Build a Cap Table and Understand the Dilution Impact of Early-Stage Investment

Friday, April 17 @ 11:45 am - 2:00 pm

$21
RSVP / Register

We’re going virtual! It’s health & safety first here in Massachusetts – therefore, we’ve decided to turn this workshop to an ONLINE ONLY event via Zoom.

We’ll email the Zoom link and the workshop materials to all the registrants shortly before the event starts. Any questions, please email team@thecapitalnetwork.org


In today’s difficult investment climate, entrepreneurs should have a clear understanding of the impact of proposed financing – before they talk to investors. This session will both explain terms and show you the exact numerical consequences of these difficult negotiating points:

  • pre-money
  • fully diluted equity
  • option pool
  • percentage ownership
  • weighted average anti-dilution
  • full ratchet anti-dilution
  • per share price

During the workshop, you will also learn how to build your own capitalization table in a simple, but powerful spreadsheet. Once you have your basic cap table built, we will discuss in detail how to use this tool to understand the dilutive impact of various investment decisions such as:

  • stock options
  • restricted stock
  • early stage angel or venture capital investment
  • down-rounds
  • anti-dilution provisions
  • and more…

Lunch will be served.
