Entrepreneurial Workshop: Entrepreneurial Business Law (Recording available)

In this workshop, we will cover the fundamentals of startup law, including but not limited to the following key concepts:

  • Legal structure: The difference between C-Corp, S-Corp and LLC; why most startups incorporate in Delaware; and what you need to know in order to file your incorporation paperwork.
  • Intellectual property protection: The difference between patents, trademarks, copyright and trade secrets and when to apply which IP protection strategy
  • Securities law for fundraising: The difference between grants, equity and debt; the difference between convertible notes, SAFEs and “lettered” or “priced” rounds
  • Founder’s shares, employee stock option grants and more
  • What you need to know before engaging a startup attorney

This session is led by Prof. Joe Volman of Derby Entrepreneurship Center.
