STRT 576 - Seed Investment Practicum
The objective of the seed investment practicum is to guide students through the entire process of sourcing, selecting and initial approach to funding of an angel or seed stage investment.  The instructor will take the class through various aspects of source identification, arriving at no more than two companies to consider investing in, determine whether a suitable investment can be made, arriving at the valuation for the investment, constructing the term sheet, and finally assisting the company(s) with investment preparation 

The pace of the course will be fast but very reflective of how angels and other seed stage investors screen, preview and arrive at valuations for seed stage investments.  Students will work as small teams to learn how to analyze small companies for their “invest-ability,” discuss investment terms and investor expectations with company executives, and develop term sheets for the investments.  Moreover, students will work with the companies to perfect their “investment message” and prepare them for suitable seed stage investments, including working closely with the companies to launch their small funding rounds.  Students should expect to spend time outside of class with their nominated companies in either team settings or individually to determine investment suitability, ease or challenges of working with the team and other aspects of the investment selection.  Additionally, students will be expected to perform high level due diligence on the companies to build their investment case for the nominated companies.
