Monthly Startup Lunch: Sweat Equity - Lessons from the Music Business

Note: This event is taking place at the downtown DC offices of Womble Carlyle. It was previously listed as the Tyson's location. Thank you! 

This month, we have a special presentation by Womble Carlyle Attorney George Scott. George went from a security guard to the Director of Entertainment Operations of the largest Native American record label in the U.S. by not focusing on the assets he needed but on how to exploit the assets he had.

About George: As an attorney with the firm’s Sports and Entertainment Group, George serves as legal counsel to professional athletes, entertainers, and entertainment companies seeking to develop and monetize their brands, raise capital for their ventures, and invest in start-up and emerging companies. As a former athlete, coach and entertainment executive, George provides a practical perspective to his sports and entertainment clients. - See more at:

In addition to George's presentation, we'll have our usual networking and discussion forum. All subjects related to startups are on the table including but not limited to: Business structure & incorporation, shares and shareholders, funding methods and strategy, intellectual property & trademarks, privacy and terms of use, mergers and acquisitions.
