SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES ARE difficult to run. That’s why nine out of ten startups fail. If you aspire to be one of the ones who makes it, you should learn from the entrepreneurs who came before you.

Nine out of ten startups will fail. This is the hard and bleak truth. Advising the Start-Up 2017 is intended to place your startup in the 10% that survive…and hopefully thrive. Learn from entrepreneurs who have started businesses that have both failed and succeeded. Learn from professionals who have advised startups from idea, to business formation, to employee no. 1, to successful startup. This Financial Poise Webinar series includes webinars covering The Very Basics – Forming the Business, Raising Capital – Negotiating with Potential Investors, HR-101: Finding, Negotiating With & Retaining Potential Hires and IP-101: What Every Founder / Entrepreneur Should Know.

The first episode of the series, The Very Basics - Forming the Business, is available on demand now (Register Here) and features moderator Jonathan Friedland of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer. He is joined by Brian Judkins of Dinsmore & Shohl, Susan Smith of Selloquent and David Lallouz of Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt.

So, you are an entrepreneur and want to start your own business (or you are an attorney, accountant, or other professional advisor working with one). One of the first decisions required is to choose a legal structure for the business. What factors should be taken into consideration prior to selecting a legal structure? Does a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company or corporation (C- or S-corp) make the most sense? This webinar focuses on business formation and the pros and cons to the different legal structures, and includes tips on how to keep one’s personal assets safe from the claims of future creditors of the business.

Each Financial Poise episode is delivered in plain English understandable to business owners and executives without much background in these areas. Yet, each episode is proven to be valuable to seasoned professionals. As with all Financial Poise Webinars, each episode in the series brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. Episodes in the series are designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the episodes.
