Business Advice - Turning Idea Into Business

Turning an Idea Product into a Business

Building the infrastructure of a business around a product or service requires detailed focus upon items that are not intuitive.

An early decision which founders must make is the selection of legal entity (LLC, Partnership, S Corp, C Corp, Non-Profit) for the business. Another critical action item is to consider steps to protect turf by keeping copycats away, to the extent possible (i.e. with copyrights, trademarks, patents, non-disclosure agreements, among other things). Hiring and incentivizing employees and finding a way to finance the business are examples of other key areas that founders need to get right. This webinar provides an overview of these topics and shares some best practices with regard to them.
