Business Law Basics for Startups Presentation
On September 25, 2015, Dzuba Law, together with Darfoor Law, put on a presentation called “Business Law Basics for Startups” for a select group of startups at Axis Space Coworking in Fort Lauderdale. Despite the mini-hurricane coinciding with the start of the presentation, the event was a great success. Over the course of the presentation, we covered some of the most important legal topics that every startup should be aware of, beginning with ‘how to avoid piercing the corporate veil’ and ending with ‘equity finance’. The equity finance portion of the presentation was enhanced by guest speaker Brandon Esposito, a venture capitalist with PMA Venture Capital Group in Miami, who added to the legal discussion with an overview of the financial considerations driving VC deals. The legal and financial knowledge conveyed during the presentation was invaluable, and was reflected in the positive feedback by the attendees. Dzuba Law and Darfoor Law hope to put on a similar event in the future.
