Learn about different legal entity structures and other startup formation basics, including:
- LLC v. C and S Corps;
* Splitting the Founder's Equity Pie
* Founder Agreements
The seminar will be followed by a workshop during which experienced startup counsel will oversee law students and startups, who will work together to develop a legal 'roadmap' on recommended entity structuring, operating agreement and other formation issues. To participate, startups must not yet have formed a company, and they must submit a current Business Concept Template to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 17. Law students interested in working with the startups should contact Stephanie Dangel SAD111@pitt.edu. A limited number of startups and law students will be selected to participate in the roadmap process. We will confirm your participation by 3/20. Note: startups are under no obligation to incorporate – this is just to help prepare for when the time is right to do so.
This seminar is part of our Start Smart Series hosted by the University of Pittsburgh's Innovation Institute, CMU's Project Olympus, and Pitt School of Law's Innovation Practice Institute. The series is year-round, free, and open to the public, and meant to provide legal education to entrepreneurs. Please check our site for more seminars!
