Using her knowledge as in-house counsel at a venture-backed startup, Collette Kerrigan – Legal Director at Lyst – shares her three key tips for the fundraising process.

Collette’s video focuses on governance, and the very practical impact the negotiation you are having over shareholder rights could have on your company’s future operations. Who is joining your Board? What rights are they asking for? What matters are the shareholders asking to go to them for approval? And – why is it so important to “never follow a precedent blindly”?
