ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

While startups and emerging companies often fuel their growth by utilizing outside consultation and support, you must be careful to protect your ideas while doing so. To that end, signing Confidential Disclosure Agreements (CDAs) can help you ensure that your confidential information will only be shared with potential investors, collaborators and entities for merger or acquisition.

Join this workshop to learn how to:

  • Include key provisions in CDAs to keep cutting-edge ideas, in-process projects, novel products, data, and other business information secret from the public at large

  • Avoid common pitfalls
