  10. Statistics On Teams • Members with previous entrepreneurial experience form teams that have a better survival rate. • Companies that are started by teams show a higher success rate (2 to 1) • High tech cost to develop is very high

  11. Reasons For a Team • Every business startup needs additional people • Founding team is one of the most important factors that determine the value of an enterprise • “A” strategies come from “A” teams

  12. More Reasons for a Team • Commercialization of new technologies is a group effort • Skills required for commercialization are not often found in one person • Technology is not the only hard part of a high tech startup

  13. Team’s Importance • Great teams are in short supply. • Plenty of technology, plenty of entrepreneurs, plenty of money, plenty of venture capital. • There's enormous change underway in every facet of the world. • To take full advantage of those opportunities, focus on the team. Teams win.

  14. Members of a Team • An expert in the technology. • An expert in sales and marketing. • An expert in finance, budgeting, and financial control. • An expert in manufacturing of products of similar type. • Other experts.

  15. Team Formation Know-how • Proper selection is vital • A business needs much more than technology to thrive • New firm management teams rarely change during the first 6 years • Common mistake: • Limiting the choice of founding team members to your own personal network!

  16. Team Formation Method 1 • Select individuals who are much like you • Extension of you • Example • If you are an extrovert, you cannot hire someone who is introverted, negative and hates people.

  33. What is a Board of Directors • The law requires a corporation to have a board of directors to protect the interests of the corporation and shareholders • An effective board can also provide independent advice and act as a check to the CEO • But for small companies, usually founders

  34. Goal of Ownership • To treat each founder as fairly as possible • Success of company depends on each founder working hard • Each founder must be satisfied that the ownership arrangement is fair

  35. Questions for Determining Ownership • Who will own what percentage of the business? • Who will actually be in control? • What property and how much money will be contributed to the business by each founder? • How much time will the participants be expected to devote to the business? • What incentives will be provided to remain with the business? • What happens when a founder leaves? • What protections does a founder have against being kicked out of the business? • Are there other persons who were involved with the business who are not currently actively involved?

  36. Ownership • Splitting the pie can be the most difficult decision • Determines who benefits from the company's success and to what degree • Often an avoided issue • Delaying resolution of this issue can be disastrous • Consider almost any contribution to the business that you think should be recognized • Cash and property contributed to the company • The nature of contributed property • Future contributions expected from each founder • Cash, property, time and effort (sweat equity), or technical or business expertise • The opportunity costs each founder will incur by joining the business

  37. Ownership: Be Fair, Not Equal • Establish a fair formula for the distribution of shares of stock among the team members • Fair does not mean equal! • Valuation is negotiable among the team members • Any value that is agreeable to all is appropriate and fair

  38. Ownership • High tech startups frequently distribute stock options instead of stock • Allows the team to avoid paying tax on stock • Team members want to have the right to vote in shareholder meetings • Options have no voting rights on holder • Make your team member remain employed in firm • Issue the shares over a period of three to five years with so many for each year

  39. Maintaining Control • 51% • Closely held ( founding team) • A few shareholders have over 50%

  40. Funding • Pre-seed • Seed • Startup • Early (First Stage) Venture • Late stage venture

  41. Funding

  42. Funding: Pre-Seed • Small amount of funds required by the nascent entrepreneurs in order to define their value proposition, convince themselves of the viability of the concept and initiate activity • Primarily self-funded or provided by the 3F • 3F: Friends, Family and Founders. • $150,000

  43. Funding: Seed • Small amount of capital provided to an inventor or entrepreneur to prove a concept and to qualify for start-up capital • Involves • Product development • Market research • Building a management team • Developing a business plan

  44. Funding: Startup • Provided to companies completing product development and initial marketing • Companies may be in the process of organizing, or they may already be in business for one year or less, but have not sold their product commercially

  45. Seed and Startup Sources • Self • Individual Angel investors • Customer financed • Non-diluteable equity sources • Firms in these stage are high tech startups with no sales • Funding required is often less than $500,000

  46. What is an Angel Investor? • An affluent individual who provides capital for a business start-up, usually in exchange for ownership equity • Unlike venture capitalists, angels typically do not manage the pooled money of others in a professionally-managed fund • Angel investors often organize themselves into angel groups to share research and pool their own investment capital

  47. Roles of Angel Investors • Angel capital fills the gap in start-up financing between the 3F and venture capital • Angel investment is a second round of financing for start-ups • Difficult to raise more than $100,000~$200,000 from friends and family • Venture capital funds will not consider investments under $1 ~ 2 million • Accounts in total for more money invested annually than all venture capital funds combined • US$24 billion vs. $22 billion in the US in 2004 According to the University of New Hampshire's Center for Venture Research

  48. Funding: First Stage

  49. Funding: First Stage • Provided to companies that have expended their initial capital and require funds to initiate full-scale manufacturing and sales • Traditionally been funded by Venture capitalists • Increasingly being addressed by angel networks and large firms interested in strategic partnerships • The typical placements are under $2,500,000

  50. How Venture Capitalists Work 1/3 • The classic approach is for a venture capital firm to open a fund • A fund is a pool of money that the VC firm will invest • The firm gathers money from wealthy individuals and from companies that have money they wish to invest • The firm will raise a fixed amount of money in the fund • For example, $100 million
