    Raising Venture Capital – What to Expect:
    • Funding from the venture capitalist may come in the form of debt or equity financing or some combination of both (i.e. debt with warrants).
    • Need to ensure that all consideration exchanged is properly recorded (for example, in a debt with detachable warrants transaction, the value of the warrants would be recorded as a contribution to equity and a discount to the face amount of the debt).
    • Beware of beneficial conversion features in convertible equity or debt instruments.
    • After the investment you will have a new member(s) on the board.
    • Will probably be required to have an audit performed annually by a reputable accounting firm.
    • Will likely have an audit committee that will meet periodically throughout the year to discuss accounting and auditing matters.
