April 28, 2021. One area we’ve seen time and again that startups need better sophistication around is building out their cofounding team in a way that sets them up for success in the long term.
This workshop will provide overall guidance as well as practical tools for startup founders and business owners seeking to build a stronger team for their venture. The workshop will cover:
- Approaches to onboarding a cofounder, appropriately leveraging founding documents and contracts;
- Common pitfalls/mistakes in cofounding arrangements and how to avoid them; and
- How to determine equity splits and set up a clean capitalization table (“cap table”).
The workshop will end with an overview of specific tools that founders can use to prepare effectively when getting ready to work with a startup attorney, so as to maximize effectiveness of this important relationship from the get-go.
