The entrepreneurial culture of Silicon Valley attracts dreamers and doers. Many come to the Valley and eagerly take the plunge: they quit their jobs and launch a start up.

Some start ups succeed. Many start ups fail. Most start ups face an array of legal, financial and operational challenges.

Our speaker will address some of the issues entrepreneurs face when conceptualizing, establishing, financing and then scaling their businesses.

Please bring your questions and scenarios.

This is part of a series of teleconferences and events featuring our speaker.
