Jaarvis Accelerator & CoworkIn is presenting 'Legal Gyaan For Startups' that will be hosted by Shubhra Mishra (Legal Counsel, Jaarvis) on 22nd October at CoworkIn, Nehru Place. Here are the details about the event:
Session 1: (11:15 AM to 11:45 AM) Why legal intervention is essential for startups- General Introduction
When starting a business one of the initial decisions that a startup and/or its founders need to make is to decide on the legal status of the company. This will affect how the company runs its business and will have implications for how the company pays its tax and records its accounts. Very often than not startup founders focus only the business idea and tend to ignore the legal implications which are a part and parcel of successfully running any business.
Session 2: (11: 45 AM to 12:30 PM) Why a startup must own its IPR- Startup and its IPR.
The early stages of a new business can be a whirlwind. Building the team, structuring the company, attracting investment and developing the product, key partnerships, sales channels and marketing plans are typically all-consuming tasks for the founders. Amid all this essential activity, intellectual property (IP) sometimes takes a back seat. The key asset of any startup is its IP and the founders who understand patents, trademark and copyright and how they fit into their business are mostly successful in securing funding.
Snacks Break (12:30 PM to 1 PM)
Session 3: (1 PM to 2 PM) What to look for when signing contracts-Key aspects of contracts/agreements.
Startups mostly are driven by their passionate ideas which leads to an informal working environment. As a result sometimes contracts and agreements of any kind among the founders, employees and vendors, investors are executed incorrectly which defeats the whole purpose thereof. It is imperative to carefully analyse and examine how each provision of the contract will affect the startup and whether all the details mentioned in the contract are correct.
Session 4: Q & A (2PM to 3PM)
Venue: CoworkIn, Nehru Place Date: 22nd October, 2016 Time: 11 AM to 3 PM
