VCCircle Training workshop on Negotiation & documentation for PE, VC and M&A Deals on Dec 14

Private equity and M&A deal making is increasingly getting complex. The key to a successful deal is a fool proof contract and agreement which is negotiated and struck between two parties. The investor would want to make sure his investment is protected, and the company would want to make sure it's able to do business unhindered and that the founders have protected their interests in the venture. In the case of an M&A as well, the two parties need to protect each other's interests, and how this is done depends on how your agreements are drafted.

VCCircle Training is organizing a one day extensive workshop on "Negotiation & documentation for PE, VC and M&A Deals" in Mumbai on 14th December at the Hotel Intercontinental Marine Drive.
