legal tips for startups raising series B financing



Lee and Chris recently blogged for Asia tech media site e27 on legal issues when raising a series B round out of Singapore. Whilst we don’t see lots of companies raise series B funding in NZ (i.e. a large second round of funding from venture capital funds), it does of course happen so hopefully the discussion is of interest.

The topics they covered were:

  1. when to start thinking about your series B round
  2. the difficulties in raising a series B round
  3. dealing with existing investor from your series A round
  4. key terms to consider
  5. founder specific issues to consider
  6. tips for the transaction documents

If you are raising a series B round or similar significant follow-on financing round either here in NZ or overseas, we would be pleased to have a chat and share our experiences.
