Law for Entrepreneurs is a networking and lecture event for NYC entrepreneurs interested in learning and meeting like-minded people. Based around a recurring series of relevant lecture topics, as well as occasional special topics, the events help entrepreneurs gain:
• a basic understanding of how to select and form a business entity, whether a corporation, limited liability company or partnership;
• a basic understanding of how to structure “partnerships,” whether in the form of a multi-shareholder corporation, a multi-member limited liability company or an actual limited or general partnership, as well as how to raise and structure equity capital;
• a basic understanding of U.S. securities laws, including commonly used exemptions from registration;
• a more in-depth understanding of early-stage priced equity financings, focusing on series seed preferred stock financings;
• a more in-depth understanding of early-stage financings using convertible instruments, including convertible notes and SAFEs (simple agreements for future equity); and
• a more in-depth understanding of how to acquire businesses, both from a process and deal structuring perspective.
Each event begins promptly at 6 pm with a 1-hour presentation. An open question and answer period follows each presentation.
All events are currently capped at 20 participants, and RSVPs are on a first come, first served basis.
