Based on my proven teaching methods, StartUp BusinessLaw Bootcamp for Entrepreneurs (SBBE) will give you the confidence to manage the risk of starting an entrepreneurial venture. It will guide you on both how to proceed without your own private attorney but also how to engage a private attorney in the most cost efficient manner when you are ready to do so.
Learn How to Avoid the Most Common Mistakes Entrepreneurs Make
My course will teach you how to become a savvy entrepreneur and avoid the most common pitfalls. You will learn how to maximize your assets and minimize your liabilities of your startup enterprise.
This course will guide you on how to avoid those common pitfalls and provide you with the agreements you need to put in place to:
Protect the assets of your business by having anyone who creates something for you sign an assignment of intellectual property.
Protect your brand by seeking trademark protection for your company name and product or service.
Use a form agreement to limit your liability for providing services or products.
Shield your personal assets from liability by forming a LLC (or corporation if you choose).
