Join us at 2 awesome Startup Week events tomorrow:

Anatomy of a Contract

Tuesday, September 17th - 8am - 9:30am at Healthgrades Operating Company Inc.

Contracts are notorious for being written in an obscure language, otherwise known as “legalese.” However, contracts are the backbone of a business and can truly make or break your success as a startup. Whether you're signing a contract or delivering one for your company, there are some common components that every startup business should be looking for and know how to decipher. We will dissect the basic elements of a few standard types of contracts so you can be better informed and protected in your business.

Speed Legal: Starting, Growing, and Funding Your Business

Tuesday, September 17th - 12pm - 1:30pm at the Jake Jabbs Center at CU Denver (5th Floor Laube Commons)

Founders face pivotal decisions in the early stage, from initial incorporation to HR, stock options, and IP strategies. Then, there’s funding, growth, and exit. The pitfalls are perilous if sound decisions don’t start at the beginning. No matter where you are in the startup journey, this program has something for you. In an interactive 90 minutes, attendees can select specific tracks. Need IP help? Join the rapid-fire roundtables on patent strategies and IP protection. Looking to make the first hires? Evaluating funders? Dedicated roundtables will be set up to address all key startup legal issues. In small groups, you’ll learn from experts and peers in a dynamic learning environment.
