    Who is the Speaker?

    Philip Mendes practiced as a lawyer in Australia for 32 years before retiring from practice. For the last 25 years of practice he practiced exclusively in relation to technology transactions, representing Australian and Asian universities, research institutes, Governments, start-up companies, SMEs, publicly listed companies and a few multinational companies.

    Workshop Objective:

    The objective of this skills development workshop is to help you negotiate the terms of investment into your start-up company by an angel investor, seed fund, venture capitalist, or any other type of investor. When an investor presents you with a term sheet, it will equip you with the following knowledge:

    •  What is negotiable and how and to what extent is it negotiable? 
    • What will you struggle to negotiate? 
    • What are the ways that you can negotiate the term sheet to be more favourable to you, without spooking the investor? 
    • What do some of those mysterious phrases in the term sheet mean, and what are their full implications? 
    • What must you make sure the terms of investment include to meet your needs? 

    After this intensive workshop you will be able to more confidently negotiate the terms of investment with an investor.
