Startup companies raising their early capital rounds are usually clueless as to what is entailed on the legal end of the process. As a result, they often turn to a small firm attorney who practices in a totally different area of the law and knows nothing about securities law (which governs the raising of capital) OR to a large firm attorney who is unfamiliar with startups and the challenges they face (including lack of funds). This presentation will provide a lay person’s education into what is required legally to protect startups as they endeavor to fund their early-stage operations, attract advisory board members, and first employees in return for small equity stakes and structure relationships with their co-founders.
Top three takeaways:
How to hire an attorney in connection with their early-stage funding rounds from an educated perspective so as not to be taken advantage of in the process.
Tax-saving strategies and how to use equity to incentivize as they grant equity to early-stage advisors/employees.
Legal tripwires to avoid as a startup.
