50 Questions: How should an entrepreneur approach negotiation of the key terms?
Together with Nic Brisbourne of The Equity Kicker / DFJ Esprit, I am writing a series of 50 questions you should ask when raising venture capital. We expect the series to run for a year, after which we will collate the answers into a book. We view this as a collaboration, so please comment to help make this series even more useful. This is #38 in the series.
Nic’s last post in the 50 Questions series was a mathematically dense explanation of how anti-dilution clauses work.

He advises to follow standard practice as far as possible to avoid terms that disproportionately benefit the investor.
