Founder Considerations for Start-ups
The interests of founders and their companies can diverge at several important junctures in a company’s lifecycle. Founders must understand when their interests are distinct from their company, and how to continue a company’s upward trajectory, while simultaneously protecting themselves. This workshop will focus on some of the most common issues where founder and company interests do not align, and discuss the most effective ways for founders to protect themselves without sacrificing the company’s best interests. Ultimately, the success of the company should mean the success of its founders.
