The key to a successful startup fundraising journey is mastering one of the final steps – the Term Sheet. Designed to outline the conditions of the investment, Term Sheets can be overwhelming and complex to navigate. Understanding SAFEs, Convertible Notes, what’s negotiable, and what’s not, there are a number of technicalities you want to get right.

Anil is a startup lawyer, angel investor, and mentor to early-stage startup founders in Silicon Valley and across the world.
