Abstract

On 25 March 2014, Trip4real founder Gloria Molins was on her way to Barcelona airport, where she and her small but passionate and audacious team would meet up and fly to San Francisco to pitch Airbnb’s co-founders on a partnership, when her phone buzzed. She had received a term sheet proposal for a €1 million Series A round from a venture capital (VC) firm. She felt a rush of gratitude. She had launched Trip4real less than two years ago, with the aim of connecting travellers with local people for authentic and meaningful experiences, and securing these funds would make it possible for her to fulfil her dream of changing the way people travel. Reading the term sheet, however, she saw several clauses that she needed to evaluate. This would be the first time she negotiated venture funding, and she needed to sort through the terms, define her priorities, and develop a strategy before sitting down with the experienced investors. And she needed to do it fast, since the term sheet would expire in 10 days.
