What are Term Sheets? 

A term sheet is a document presented to a company by an angel investor or venture capital investor who is considering an investment in your company. The terms stated in the term sheet are typically non-binding. In this sense, a term sheet is similar to a letter of intent. The term sheet provides a blueprint of the proposed investment, containing specific information regarding the conditions that the investor would expect the company to abide by in the event of the investor’s capital investment. Term sheets are often likened to a prenuptial agreement in a marriage.

Understanding the Parts of a Term Sheet 

Term sheets typically contain a great deal of important information, set out in three specific sections:

Down Round

What Is a Down Round?

A "down round" is a round of financing where investors pay less for the company's stock than the previous investors. If it happens to your company, it doesn't mean the end times are coming, but it is a major wake-up call and a sign that something needs to change.

The companies that can go through down rounds are startups and other private businesses that don't trade stocks on a public exchange. With no public trading, they sell stock in rounds to private investors. Since a stock exchange can't set the company's value, the company and the investors have to work out their value instead. And when this sets the company's value to lower than it was before, it creates a down round.

Why Is a Down Round Important?

In an ideal world, every round brings in more money, since the business is always growing and
