DAY 2 | 10:30 – 12:00 | Room: PANORAMA 4 (6th Floor)
Over the last few years, convertible loans became more and more popular as alternative to traditional financing rounds, particularly for obtaining early stage financing.
In addition, some headache has been created by hybrid financing instruments, such as SAFE (Simple Agreement for Future Equity), which have been imported from common law jurisdictions.
Finally, the hype about ICOs left many founders with a certain level of confusion about the best way to obtain financing.
This masterclass by Alex Nikitine & Ramona Wyss at Walder Wyss will explain these various instruments, pro’s and con’s compared to traditional equity financing, potential pitfalls and the impact your choice might have on the success of your start-up project.
