In this hybrid seminar, Katherine Moyer, partner at Hershner Hunter, will walk us through the typical steps of a startup, from entity formation through early fundraising rounds. Using a fictional company as an example, we’ll discuss what to do and what not to do in that process in order to protect yourself and your business. Although the company we’ll be discussing is fictional, it is based on Moyer’s experience with a multitude of startups over the past 20 years.
This seminar will be offered in-person for participants and mentors of the Women’s Innovation Network at Onward Eugene located at 942 Olive St in Eugene. Others may register using the button at the bottom of this page to register to join us virtually via Zoom. Those with Internet connectivity concerns are encouraged to contact us about in-person attendance.
