TCVN Workshop: How to Avoid Common Entrepreneur Mistakes

April 19 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Register HERE!

Starting a business is hard! If only it was as simple as building your prototype and executing on your business plan! At the same time, you need to make sure you don’t get whacked on the back of the head because you ignored (or were not aware of) certain legal requirements, which can render your company unfundable in the eyes of an investor.

In this TCVN workshop, Bart Greenberg, founder of Pivotal Law Firm, Inc., will discuss the more common mistakes made by start-ups, and how to avoid them.

Topics will include, among other things:

  • common mistakes made in connection with entity selection and formation
  • hiring and firing team members
  • acquisition and protection of intellectual property rights
  • corporate governance
  • issuing stock to team members and others.
