Walking Before Running: Legal Foundations for Launching Your Company
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Entrepreneurs dream big. That's part of what defines them. But trying to accommodate the grand vision for what a start-up will be in 5-10 years can over-complicate legal matters and deplete cash reserves. In an environment where the only constant is change, savvy founders benefit from focusing less on developing complex ownership structures and global patent shields and more on maintaining flexibility with a solid baseline. This panel will discuss entity formation, founder equity and intellectual property protection strategies intended to evolve with your business.
