StartupLegalandFinanceBootcamp is a limited seating (40 people only, we have a small space sorry) 1 day BarCamp for Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who want to learn the basics of legal and financial details of starting a new company.


We are inviting 3 CEO Founders, 3 angel investors and 3 Legal, Accounting and HR professionals who can help answer questions, walk you through the basics of:


  1. Legal structure of the company (C Corp vs. LLC vs. S Corp)
  2. Funding (angel vs. Venture capital vs. bootstrap)
  3. HR and Operations (Benefits, payroll etc.)


We were thinking of this the same time as Ross and Eric blogged about this.
