From the conference website:
DealFlow Media's Alternative Finance Conference is a forum for discussion of unconventional sources of capital for Israeli companies. This event transcends familiar dialogue on venture capital and private equity and dives right into the topics that Israeli companies aren't familiar with - alternative public offerings, PIPEs (Private Investment in Public Equity), Registered Directs, Confidentially Marketed Public Offerings (CMPOs), SPACs (Special Purpose Acquisition Companies), alternatives to venture capital and structured debt investments, to name a few.
Whether it's tracking new deal strategies or emerging geographical regions, DealFlow Media has been first with innovative programming, unique content, and exciting networking opportunities for finance professionals.
The Alternative Finance Conference has one goal - to educate Israeli companies by pairing them up with International experts on cross-border finance.

4:50PM - 5:40PM - Selling a Venture Backed Company
When a venture backed company is up for sale, founders need to be aware of the impacts that venture capital investment has on the company. What are the key clauses that are customarily included in VC transactions that could impact the sale? Panelists examine the effects various types of preferred stock issued in VC rounds may have, along with liquidation preferences and customary solutions including the use of a "carve-out plan" to retain key employees.
