Startup Hack: Legal 101 (Watch Now)
For businesses that are starting out, there is a series of practical legal issues that determine whether a business can last past the early phase:
- How do I come to an agreement with my co-founder/partner?
- What should I look out for in an agreement with my investors?
- What risks can I disclaim against my client/customer?
- Can my business really benefit from intellectual property?
In this webinar, under Startup Hack, we have with us Walter Silvester from Silvester Legal LLC to discuss with us topics that concern startups.
Topics covered include the shareholders’ agreement, company constitution, investment process, and intellectual property basics.
Whether you are starting a traditional business or a fast-growing tech startup, there will be something for you.
