On October 30, 2020, Women in Big Data hosted a workshop on Finance 101 with Mark Thorpe, VP Finance and Corporate Controller, Eargo, and host, Shuchi Rana, Co-Director Women in Big Data Silicon Valley Chapter.

This question-and-answer session focused on early-stage funding from Seed to Series- A stages.

Some of the discussion included:

  • What do investors look for in investing?
  • The importance of financial and accounting KPIs and the need to align with investors, the board, and founders.
  • What is valuation?
  • What are some early-stage financial considerations, such as share classes and the granting of options?

See Mark’s talk.

Thank you, Mark!
