Burn rate. Right of First Refusal. Drag along. For anyone who is impacted by the venture capital and startup industry--founders, employees, investors--it's crucial to understand the lingo. Many of the terms thrown around are technical legalese or just plain old industry jargon. Either way, they matter. We have complied a robust glossary to help you navigate these terms as they come up in your professional journey.

You can find our Venture Capital Glossary here. We'll be adding to it over time, so keep coming back to check on terms you're curious about.  Don't see a term on there you're looking for? Let us know at hello at equityzen dot com and we'll add it. Happy learning!
