EDP 2021 - DAY 3: Legal Basics for Startups

Online event

LEGAL BASICS FOR STARTUPS

For most startup founders, legal aspects are considered as a task that's limited to getting the documentation & formalities complete. They end up pushing the legal aspects to later stages when the business grows.

That's the major reason behind the failure of 80% of startups.
Such startups do not acknowledge the significance of legal compliances!

In the real business sense, legal compliances are not only born even before the business itself, but they also grow with it.

As an early-stage startup, you must keep a check on the legal obligations to protect your business from long-term consequences that impact both operations & monetary losses.

In this session, Vandana will explain the Basic Laws applicable to Startups. You will learn about business structure, important Acts, dispute resolution, compliances, and many more topics. You will learn to negotiate better with Third Parties such as employees, vendors, investors, etc.

SESSION SCHEDULE:
1. Business structure-Sole proprietor, LLP, Partnership, or a Company. (15
minutes)
2. Contract laws and dispute resolution. (30 minutes)
3. Compliances for start-ups. (30-40 minutes)
4. Laws related to advertisements. (10 minutes)
5. Laws related to real estate. (10 minutes)
6. Torts liability for start-ups. (15 minutes)
7. Consumer Protection Act and E-commerce, Information Technology
Law(45minutes)
8. Corporate Governance (15-20 minutes).

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
1. Entrepreneurs who wish to grow organically.
2. Wish to develop your reputation and goodwill in the market. As goodwill also has a monetary value attached to it.
3. People looking out for investment in the future.
4. People, who do not wish to be caught inexpensive and time-consuming legal tangles in their entrepreneurial journey.

Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB), and various Industry Associations and Councils.
