  • Description

    Startups seem to be forming on a daily, maybe even hourly, basis. Which will succeed and which will fail is somewhat dependent on the strength of the idea, but even more so on an entrepreneur’s ability to move the innovation through the initial phases of development and launch. This CLE course will explain this startup process and how to move an idea through the initial concept to a scalable product or service that can compete in the market. The course will explain the types of entities that one might consider forming, idea protection, apportioning equity, and exploring funding options. The course will also address raising money without running afoul of securities law.
