Technically, any new business is a “startup,” regardless of what it does. But there are significant differences between a “small business” engaged in a basic retail or service business operated by its founders, and a “venture startup” backed by outside investors that is engaged in a manufacturing, high technology, e-commerce, Internet, or media business. One of the most common mistakes business attorneys make is to confuse the two, assuming that what works for an antiques store will also work for an e-commerce website.
This program focuses on representing the venture startup and dealing with the often complicated legal, tax, financial, and ethical issues involved in working with fast-growing enterprises run by time-challenged entrepreneurs and backed by professional investors.
All attorneys interested in representing startup ventures will benefit from this seminar.
