Avoiding Startup Shutdown to Raise Capital

Tuesday, March 15
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 9ABC
531 E 4th St

While Snoop, Ashton, and Kobe are busy cutting big Series A checks to startups, Soundcloud, Uber, and AirBnB are fighting expensive legal battles on multiple fronts. Unicorns and Angels are wising up and doing their due diligence in advance to avoid bad investments and the destruction of corporate valuations. For tech innovators and content creators who develop unique products, technology, or services, preventative legal measures are crucial to side-step land mines, raise capital, and protect shareholder value. This session designed for attorneys, entrepreneurs, C-level execs, and financiers will discuss from legal and financial perspectives several trends that threaten and impact startups.
