Founders’ Agreement Workshop
February 17 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
DPELC Founders’ Agreement Workshop
Presented by Northwestern Pritzker School of Law’s Donald Pritzker Entrepreneurship Law Center
It is an important step to put a written founder’s agreement in place. This agreement documents the deal among the co-founders on many important decisions, including equity split and control. Without a founder’s agreement, it may be difficult for founders to resolve disagreements in the future and ventures may stumble or ultimately fail. In this workshop, we will discuss the importance of these agreements and certain key terms that founders should consider including.
The Donald Pritzker Entrepreneurship Law Center (DPELC), is a nonprofit, student-focused academic program. With the explosion of entrepreneurship around the country, lawyers need to be prepared both to serve entrepreneurs as clients and to approach legal problems in a more entrepreneurial manner.
