This is an informal and insightful discussion on US venture capital and investment. We’ll be taking a look at both sides of the coin – raising US investment for start-ups and investing funds in US companies.
We are delighted to welcome Charles Torres, from US law firm Perkins Coie (a top tier firm for venture capital transactions). Charles is a recognized expert in the New York City technology community and has nearly 20 years’ experience in advising emerging companies throughout all phases of growth, as well as the venture capital and angel investors that fund and acquire them. Together with Osborne Clarke partner David Miranda, head of our venture capital practice in Spain, we will discuss key opportunities in the US for emerging companies and VCs and compare this with opportunities and the practicalities in Spain and the wider European market.
The discussion will cover topics including: starting up in the US; general market trends in the US and Spain; how investors approach valuation; how to get involved in the NYC/Silicon Valley network; Delaware flips; deal terms and more. The event will also provide a fantastic opportunity to meet and network with like-minded entrepreneurs and investors in the VC and start-up community.
