Rick Segal has the helpful VC post of the day up on his site at Post Money Value titled Annotated Term Sheet and the Secret Prize. Rick links to annotated term sheet for an early stage VC investment from lawyer Craig Brown at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP. Having just read through this, it nicely compliments the Term Sheet series that Jason and I wrote on Feld Thoughts last year.
If you’ve never seen a term sheet before, this is a great place to start. If you’ve seen plenty of term sheets but never completely understood all the terms, take a look. If you think you know all the terms, take a look anyway – I bet you’ll learn something. Make sure you also go to the post on Rick’s blog as he’s got a secret prize for you if you are interested.
