JOBS Act

  • 5 min read

The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, or JOBS Act, is a law signed into effect by President Obama in 2012, designed to promote the growth of jobs in small businesses. Its goal is to make it easier for startups to raise the money and equity they need to grow, and give startups and small businesses more access to capital.

Term Sheet

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
