AgStart's Founder Education: A Founder's Journey: Financial and Legal Milestones

AgStart's Founder Education workshops provide critical frameworks and insights for founders, innovators, and entrepreneurs in any industry. Workshops often draw specific examples from the agriculture and food technology domain to illustrate key concepts.

In this workshop, Dr. Fatma Kaplan, CEO of local AgTech startup Pheronym, will describe her company's journey through a series of legal and financial milestones as her company has progressed, including corporate organization and re-organization, intellectual property filings, working with an accelerator, two different financing transactions, and a host of partnering agreements with government, corporate, and other players for services, testing, and collaboration while protecting her company's interests.

Entrepreneurs anticipating similar milestones in their future can ask questions and gain insight into how they would navigate similar milestones. For advice and guidance on how to navigate these milestones and avoid some of the potential obstacles, we'll be joined by one of our AgStart mentor/advisors and legal advisor, Michelle Hallsten of Greenberg Traurig.

Appetizers, water, tea and coffee will be provided.
