  1. Convertible debt should count in total shares outstanding b/c it almost *always* converts.
  2. Properly-written double triggers give meaningful downstream protection.
  3. Divide by 5-10 what the VC swears he won’t sell the company for less than.
  4. Have written proof of preference structure, and you’ll be taken care of upon exit.
