About this talk

Starting and building a company is incredibly difficult—which is why it’s wonderful when you find a business partner who shares your vision. But conflict among founders is inevitable, and if there is no process in place to resolve conflicts they can tear a company apart. A Founders’ Agreement can help by prescribing a resolution for common conflicts and providing a process for resolving others.

Join Ben Hron of law firm McCarter & English to discuss typical terms in a Founders’ Agreement and how they can help your company.

We’ll dive into:

-Dividing equity among co-founders
-Vesting founder equity
-Who gets a seat on the Board
-What happens if you just can’t agree

This event is part of the Founder Track for Startup Boston Week 2020. This event is perfect for idea-stage and early stage companies.
