Pre-launch - Preparing to Take the Plunge


New companies don't just spring up by themselves. Start-ups take planning and preparation. We will discuss concrete steps necessary to provide for a smooth transition from previous employment to new start-up, and issues that need to be addressed and resolved among founders before you open your doors. Sensitive issues include: (i) who should be a founder and get founder's equity; (ii) the role of each founder in the business; (iii) start-up organizational chart; (iv) the start-up business plan: (v) how to leave your former employer without getting sued.
