Happy 2018 Denver Founders!

We're kicking the year off with a bang....and Bacon.

This month we're trying something new based on your feedback. We are going to roll out some educational content before the regularly scheduled programming. We are very lucky to have Adam and Rick from Polsinelli, who will conduct an interactive session focusing on issues that will help set-up early-stage companies for successful later-stage financings and exits. Then we have an amazing guest, Dave Bacon. 4:30 PM - Denver Founders Educational Series

5:30 PM - Networking

6:30 PM - Founder Q and A

About This Months Educational Series

We will discuss organizational structure, founder equity splits, incentive plans, seed financings, and other common legal pitfalls that, if not dealt with in the company’s infancy, significantly impact valuations and founder control as the company matures. This talk has been a big hit @ SXSW over the last few years.
