Following the initial boom in 1999 and 2000, venture capital activity sharply declined. The trend has now come full circle and venture capital is once again a hot area for many investors. An understanding of current market conditions and the changing legal environment is essential for success.
At this program, an expert faculty of lawyers, venture capitalists, and business executives will analyze advanced legal and business issues relevant to thriving in today’s venture capital world. The program will address the latest financing trends, current deal terms, exit strategies and the legal and practical implications of the new securities laws on the venture capital market.
