  • The risks of getting funding by issuing shares

    As an entrepreneur, you want to get funding as quickly as possible, whilst minimizing risks. Therefore, it is very important to be prepared before signing a term sheet with an investor and going to the notary to issue shares. To avoid wasting time, you will need to get the numbers of your business straight. Investors will be scared off if this is not the case or you will not be able to get as good a deal. A well-designed pitch deck that you can send to possible investors will arouse their interest, please make sure not to underestimate its value. It is also important to think about the amount (percentage) of shares that you are willing to trade for the funding. Be aware of the fact that you are entering a long-term relationship with the investor, who will get a certain level of control over your business in return for his investment. When an investor gets a large amount of shares for its investment, it is important to keep an eye on the amount of control the investor has and/or can acquire in the future. A strong relationship with your investors is important. If you do not maintain this relationship, it could even mean end of your business, as you might need them in the future, so be sure to be selective in choosing the right investor for you. The same goes for the terms that the investors get with their share package. The shareholders agreement plays a major part in this. Disadvantageous terms in the shareholders agreement can cause your enterprise a lot of trouble in the future, for they can, amongst other things, make you less attractive for possible investors. For this reason it is key to be well prepared before entering the negotiations that lead to forming these terms.
