Following the positive feedback and requests for more content, we are happy to invite you to a second seminar on legal and IP for startups.

The objective of this Meetup is to present and discuss major issues that entrepreneurs and startup executives are concerned with, from both legal and practical perspectives. The seminar will address questions such as: How can you protect your sourcecode, and what pitfalls you should avoid?  What are the basic principles of early stage equity financing? What are the differences between angel and VC investment? In addition, we will discuss dilemmas around software licensing and compare the benefits of partnering with a global leader vs. local distributor. Looking forward to see you!

    The lectures were very relevant to young startups. We couldn't have asked for better speakers and more focused presentations.

    Well done.

    very informative. I can recommend further reading about fund raising (from VCs) - "Venture Deals" by Brad Feld and jason Mendelson. You can read much of the content of this book on their blog :
