School’s Back!

I am so excited to be back at Loyola Law School teaching Business Planning I: Financing the Start-Up and Venture Capital Financing this semester!

The course motivates students to consider the legal and business implications involved  in forming and operating an emerging business. The course, much like my First Time Entrepreneur Workshop, analyzes:

  • The deal cycle of a start up company
  • Selecting a business entity
  • Structuring the economic benefits
  • Management control among various owners
  • Protecting intellectual property
  • Raising capital

 

During this course law students learn to apply these ideas by reviewing and analyzing legal documents typically used in organizing and financing a start-up. The goal of the class is to prepare students for the types of projects and challenges they will one day confront as lawyers.

I look forward to this semester, I know it’ll be a great one!
