Workshop Title: Navigating the Legal Landscape for Startups

Date: Thursday, 18 April 2024

In the dynamic world of startups, understanding and navigating the legal landscape is paramount for success.  From inception to expansion, startups encounter many legal considerations, requiring robust legal support throughout their business lifecycle to build strong foundations.

Establishing a solid legal framework early on through tasks like entity formation, founder agreements and intellectual property protection is crucial. 

In our upcoming workshop, we will delve into the primary and most critical legal issues that founders of technology startups should consider at the outset of their entrepreneurial journey. This workshop will not only cover pivotal topics like setting up the business plan and choosing the right business structure but also extend to protecting intellectual property rights, regulating the relationship between partners/shareholders and raising capital.  

Additionally, we will explore the essential aspect of building the right relationships through legal agreements and effectively interacting with the public. The trainer’s expertise will guide participants through these complex challenges.

The workshop aims to empower startup founders by providing them with in-depth knowledge and practical strategies, enabling them to establish resilient foundations and pave the way for sustainable growth and long-term success.
