Techstars and LEAP are hosting a FREE twice-a-month series of founder stories and entrepreneurship workshops for the greater Louisville region. If you are a current founder, interested in becoming an entrepreneur, joining a startup team, or being more entrepreneurial in your job or life, this is for you.
Join us on Wednesday, July 24 from 5:00 - 6:30PM for a hands-on workshop about demystifying the cap table.
Who is this workshop for?
David's session is meant for current and would-be entrepreneurs who want to better understand cap tables and financing structures. He demystifies the sometimes overwhelming technical jargon, breaking it down into terms and concepts that even first-time entrepreneurs with no prior exposure can easily understand.
