Business Law + Finance Workshop
Join us April 18th 7:30-9:30 am as we discuss the Un-Sexy Side to Starting your Business.
You’ve created your product, picked your name, done your branding, built a website and are ready to go! Right? It’s probably the LAST thing you want to think about when you’re full of ideas and ready to launch, but laying the proper legal and financial foundation and having a team on your side can save you time, money and headaches down the road as your business grows. In this workshop, Jaime and Lisa will provide an overview of some of the important legal and financial aspects to consider in your business, like partnerships v. companies, the importance of having the right contracts in place, planning for taxes, building a financial-acumen toolkit, and how you can protect your brand.
