Join Daliah Saper on Tuesday, June 12 for 1871’s legal panel So (Don’t) Sue Me: Avoiding Common Legal Pitfalls When Starting your Business.
Daliah, a current 1871 Mentor, will join a panel of experienced startup advisers to help new founders understand and avoid some of the common mistakes startups and small businesses make when they’re first starting out. The panelists will address common legal questions business owners ask in the early stages of growing a company. The session will be followed by a Q&A.
