Learn the basics of business formation, the pros and cons to the different legal structures, and gain insight into how to keep one’s personal assets safe from the claims of future creditors of the business.

CHICAGO

Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the January 22nd premiere of a new webinar series, THE START-UP / SMALL BUSINESS ADVISOR 2019, which gives startups and their advisors useful tools and insight into how they can build a foundation for success.

Most startups are not destined to become billion dollar unicorns. Most, in fact, will fail and most of those that survive will never be more than small businesses. Whether and to what extent a startup will be successful depends on many factors. One set of factors is the foundational pillars on which the company is built, and includes things such as the company’s capital structure, financial controls, human capital, market niche, and marketing functions.

This series explores each of these topics, giving startups and their advisors useful tools and insight into how they can build a foundation for success.

The first episode of the series, The Very Basics – Forming the Business, airs on January 22nd at 3:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Christopher Cahill of Lowis & Gellen LLC. He is joined by Leslee Cohen of Hershman Cohen LLC, Kurt A. Oreshack of the Breakwater Law Group, and Nick Petit of Vamonde.

So, you are an entrepreneur and want to start your own business (or you are an attorney, accountant, or other professional advisor working with one). One of the first decisions required is to choose a legal structure for the business. What factors should be taken into consideration prior to selecting a legal structure? Does a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company or corporation (C- or S-corp) make the most sense? This webinar focuses on business formation and the pros and cons to the different legal structures, and includes tips on how to keep one’s personal assets safe from the claims of future creditors of the business.

THE START-UP / SMALL BUSINESS ADVISOR 2019 webinar series is produced by Financial Poise.™ Other episodes in this series include “Raising Capital- Negotiating with Potential Investors” airing on February 19th, “HR-101: Finding, Negotiating With & Retaining Potential Hires” airing on March 19th, and “What Every Founder/Entrepreneur Must Know” airing on April 16th. Each episode airs at 3:00 PM CST. All episodes premiere live through West LegalEdCenter and then are made available on-demand.

As with every Financial Poise Webinar, each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to investors, business owners, and executives without much background in these areas, yet is also valuable to attorneys, accountants, and other seasoned professionals. And, as with every Financial Poise Webinar, each episode brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. Each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all episodes.
