Company Formation

March 21 | 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Learn about different legal entity structures and other startup formation basics, including:

– LLC v. C and S Corps;

-Founder Arrangements

* Splitting the Founder’s Equity Pie

* Founder Agreements

-Employee Equity

The seminar will be followed by a workshop during which experienced startup counsel will oversee law students and startups, who will work together to develop a legal ‘roadmap’ on recommended entity structuring, operating agreement and other formation issues. To participate, startups must not yet have formed a company, and they must submit a current Business Concept Template to kit@cs.cmu.edu by March 17.  Law students interested in working with the startups should contact Stephanie Dangel SAD111@pitt.edu.  A limited number of startups and law students will be selected to participate in the roadmap process.  We will confirm your participation by 3/20.  Note: startups are under no obligation to incorporate – this is just to help prepare for when the time is right to do so.
