Virtual Virtual Event
MECUSA (Spanish Women Scientists in USA) offers a free workshop to enhance professional development of women scientists in Venture Capital

‘Venture Capital for PhDs: small molecules and biologicals’ is a course organized by MECUSA, Spanish women scientists in USA. This 13-week intensive course explores the financial challenges that entrepreneurs face when establishing and growing their business ventures. We’ve empaneled international experts to provide a better understanding of each stage of start-up financing and development in both the USA and Europe. The famous glass ceiling has traditionally prevented women from reaching leadership positions in science, but even more so in areas of venture capital and entrepreneurship. For this reason, we have chosen mostly women scientists as our speakers to prove that women can access these professions and encourage other women to do so.

About the Workshop:

We will focus on the corporate law fundamentals that are a must-know for start-up entrepreneurs. We will dive in the importance of understanding how are venture deals structured and what is key to bear in mind when negotiating with VCs, specifically in terms of economic and governance rights. We will structure the talk in three major areas: (i) Rights and obligations of shares, (ii) what is the role of the founder and how should her bond be with the Company (dedication, compensation, exclusivity and non-competition) and (iii) key areas to understand and how to negotiate (focus on what is important).

Please, note that tickets will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis and are subject to availability (100 attendees).

Note: we welcome people of any gender or nationality to this workshop. A certificate of attendance will be provided to ECUSA full members who attend all workshop sessions.
