Early stage companies (startups) are critical to economic growth. But startups face complicated legal issues because of their limited financial resources, the dynamic phase of product development, their hiring requirements, and their pursuit of investment. Put simply: startups always have legal questions and never have money; attorneys have answers, but always cost money.
With a conversation that will speak to both non-attorneys (startups) as well as attorneys, please join Charles Belle (Executive Director at the Institute for Innovation Law at UC Hastings) and attorney Ken Priore (General Counsel of Grindr) as they provide an overview of the legal issues startups face from launch to Series A funding.
Specific topics include:
- Understanding the lifecyle basics of a startup, from bootstrapped to Series A
- Critical legal needs startups need to be aware of
- When lawyers over lawyer: what startups don’t need
- When startups should be charged for services and when not
- Practical steps startups should consider in their funding options as they develop
- The impact of the new crowdfunding legislation as a funding mechanism
