Startup Showcase Live Investment Terms

Startup Showcase Live Finalists have the opportunity to raise $500,000 USD fromCatalyst by Wellstar, Front Porch Venture Partners, Knoll Ventures, Las Olas Venture Capital, and TiE Atlanta Angels (the “Showcase Syndicate”). This is the summary of our investment terms. Specifics may be varied to accommodate local law and custom but will be within the parameters of standard NVCA terms.

$500,000 SAFE NOTE INVESTMENT 
After being chosen as the winner, the Showcase Syndicate will invest $500,000 USD in exchange for a standard post-money SAFE Note (“SAFE”), payable within 60 days after the event and subject to the company’s satisfactory completion of our due diligence and a fully executed investment agreement.

• Valuation Cap
The Startup Showcase Live SAFE has a standard valuation cap based on revenue* traction of the business:

    · Pre-Revenue: $3,500,000 Post Money Cap

    · Greater than $0 but less than $250,000 ARR or Trailing 12-month revenue (“Revenue”): $5,000,000 Post Money Cap

    · Greater than $250,000 Revenue: Post Money Cap increased by $500,000 over $5,000,000 for every $50,000 of Revenue above 
$250,000 of Revenue. (i.e., a company with $500,000 in Revenue would receive a $7,500,000 Post Money Cap), up to $10,000,000 (or Revenue of $750,000).

    · Businesses with more than $750,000 of Revenue: Subject to a $10,000,000 Post Money Cap

    · *Revenue will be measured by annualizing the total of the previous 3 months of revenue ending August 31, 2024. If the winning company’s Revenue includes the sale of goods, the Revenue will be calculated based on net revenue and not GMV.


• Conversion at Qualified Financing
In the case of an equity financing before the termination of the SAFE, the dollars invested through the SAFE will automatically convert into the SAFE preferred stock equal to the purchase price divided by the conversion price. The conversion price will be the lesser of (i) a 20% discount to the price paid by other investors in the qualified financing or (ii) the price obtained by dividing the valuation cap by the number of outstanding shares of the company immediately prior to the Qualified Financing calculated on a fully diluted basis.

PREEMPTIVE RIGHTS
Pro-rata rights to allow the Showcase Syndicate to continue investing in subsequent investment rounds of your company. This right is assignable to allow the Showcase Syndicate to participate in seed or later rounds. The preemptive right terminates when the investors in the Showcase Syndicate are granted the same or substantially similar preemptive rights issued in connection with a Qualified Financing or upon the Company’s IPO or sale, if earlier.

INFORMATION RIGHTS
Quarterly operating metrics, cash position, revenue, burn rate, runway, financial statements, and an updated cap table.
