Partnering Bootcamp Session Two: Down Market – What to Do in the New Economy

We may be entering a sustained down environment for the first time since 2008-2009. Many founders, investors and even lawyers have never experienced this, and even for those who have, it’s been a long time since you had to think about this. A group of panelists shared their perspectives on a series of related topics including tough terms in down environment financing, down rounds and anti-dilution, board and fiduciary duty, convertible loans and financing fallout and sales and restructuring.
