Course Description

Partnerships are the backbone of success in the start-up world. They allow an entrepreneur with a strong concept to obtain the skills they require to realize it, and to increase their chances of profitability and growth. Choosing the perfect partner is your client’s job; it’s your job to protect your client. In this course, attorney Todd Kulkin provides a top-to-bottom understanding of partnerships and how to counsel partners through formation, the (hopeful) ascension of their business, and (hopefully not) their collapse.   

 

Learning Objectives: 

I.     Learn due diligence techniques to identify potential problems before they arise

II.    Recognize the different forms a new partnership can take 

III.   Identify the major entrepreneurial “archetypes,” and what type of partnership fits each best

IV.   Understand the most crucial aspects of a partnership agreement 

V.    Protect your client if something goes wrong in the partnership 

VI.   Appreciate the ways in which a partnership can fail and advise your client how to both prepare for and avoid such failures

Another informative, common-sensical, enjoyable presentation by Mr. Kulkin. I've counseled or been a part of start-ups intermittently for over 30 years, and found myself both nodding in agreement and recognition AND noting some issues and approaches I wish I'd known and applied years earlier.
