TOPICS

Get Official From The Start

Getting started doesn’t have to be difficult when you understand the essential steps to incorporating and staffing your business. From business naming and registration to selecting the right form of business entity, we’ll walk you through the first stages of becoming official. Next, learn how to form an operating agreement with co-founders, and what’s necessary to open a business checking account. Finally, learn the difference between independent contractors and employees so you can start building a team.

Protect Your Secret Sauce

Your most valuable business asset may just be your intellectual property. Patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets are all forms of company property that need proper legal protection, and failing to explore the vast world of IP can leave your business vulnerable. In this course, we simplify this complex subject and teach you how to analyze the value and protectability of all your potential intellectual property.

Make Sense of Business Dollars

Financing a business can be complicated if it’s your first time raising funds. You’ll get an overview of debt and equity financing options along with their benefits and risks. We’ll also teach you how to negotiate financing terms and which key terms are often evaluated and negotiated when receiving venture capital funding. Plus, learn how to set aside employee stock options, incentive stock options, and more.
