Description

Legal aspects of running a startup: How not to mess up your company!

Two things are true for 99% of founders: 1. We are short on cash! 2. The limited money we have, we prefer to spend on activities that generate revenue (and not on expensive lawyers). It is good to be cheap as a founder, but it often generates severe problems when startups haven't thought their legal setup through and/or have not gotten their agreements down on paper.

But how do I avoid doing the most dangerous legal mistakes that might jeopardize the future of my startup (without spending million on legal fees)?

At PreSeed Academy #8 we will try to answer this question, by sharing hands-on experiences and advice on the topic from both a legal expert (working as a lawyer in a VC fund) and from a founder of a tech startup (with a background as attorney).

We will be focusing on the legal issues arising from taking in co-founders, employees and investors into the startup. So we will discussing Shareholders Agreements, vesting of warrants, share classes, veto rights, dead equity, Board of Directors etc.

Anne Cathrine Wilhjelm is lawyer at Preseed Ventures. Being overall responsible for the legal aspects in a VC fund, she has been involved in hundreds of startup due-diligence processes. She is an expert in most common mistakes startups do, both in terms of their internal relations (agreements between shareholders/founders) but also in regards of their relations with investors.

Søren Munk Hansen is former attorney at Plesner, but is now co-founder of the tech-startup Archii. Søren therefore knows the legal issues in startups from both sides of the table and will share what Archiii has done to protect the company from future legal issues.
