Many Venture Capital investors have an interest in the “early stage” Company, however, the definition of "Early Stage" is considerably different, depending on who you’re talking to.

This CXO Forum will focus on what constitutes an “early stage-seed round” opportunity and what are the key points that make for a compelling "early-stage" investment opportunity.

During this session, the panelists will discuss the following issues:
· How does the VC Firm define “early stage seed round”?
· What are the financing structures commonly used in Early Stage deals
· What type of team is necessary to get consideration?
· How does Due Diligence work for early stage investments
· Does the firm have allocation percentages to early stage companies
· Does a VC’s role in an early stage company differ from a later stage?
· Within the definition of “Early Stage”, what is too late?
· What additional risks do early stage companies bring to the Venture Capital investor?
· What sectors are creating the best Early Stage opportunities?
