How do venture capital deals come together? This is one of the most frequent questions asked by each generation of new entrepreneurs. Surprisingly, there is little reliable information on the subject. No one understands this better than Brad Feld and Jason Mendelson. The founders and driving force behind the Foundry Group-a venture capital firm focused on investing in early-stage information technology companies-Brad and Jason have been involved in hundreds of venture capital financings. Their investments range from small startups to large Series A venture financing rounds. The new edition of Venture Deals continues to show fledgling entrepreneurs the inner-workings of the VC process, from the venture capital term sheet and effective negotiating strategies to the initial seed and the later stages of development.

Fully updated to reflect the intricacies of startups and entrepreneurship in today's dynamic economic environment, this new edition includes revisions and updates to coverage on negotiating, gender issues, ICO's, and economic terms. New chapters examine legal and procedural considerations relevant to fundraising, bank debt, equity and convertible debt, how to hire an investment banker to sell a company, and more.

Great book and really helpful, but hard to to digest some of the legalese verbally. Narration was a bit slow, but was more engaging at 1.5x speed.

As a founder raising money for the first time, I found this audiobook to be very helpful. I wasn't necessary looking to get into the fine details from listening to the audiobook, but it provided an excellent high level overview. I was able to bookmark things that I wanted to come back to and later revisit them and follow it up with online research. If you don't know what you don't know when raising money, this is the perfect place to start. It'll get you in the ballpark of figuring out what is important and where you should focus your efforts.
