All startup ventures begin with high expectations, but things don’t always go to plan. This can be especially true during challenging economic environments. So how do you navigate venture capital term sheets that may contain down-round valuations, pay-to-play, management carveouts, or the dreaded full-ratchet?

Whether you are a technologist or a biologist, an energizer or an innovator, a CEO, CFO, or an in-house lawyer, the #FoleyIgnite blog is designed to keep you, your board, your investors, and your fellow founders, funders, and friends up-to-date on the latest developments in the Global Silicon Valley. The blog offers informative insights on the issues that impact you the most, including key issues at formation, founder equity, intellectual property protection, global markets, corporate housekeeping, and navigating the exit. It’s one of the many resources available on Foley Ignite, a technology-enabled platform designed to support the needs of startups, founders, emerging growth companies, and the entire investor community.
