Rhode Island may be the nation’s smallest state, but its startup scene is robust and booming. Our state is poised to grow into a top emerging market for entrepreneurship over the next decade. Brand new startups and entrepreneurs with new ideas to grow their businesses are looking for legal advice and guidance on a multitude of legal issues in a myriad of practice areas.
Israel, a country just slightly larger than Rhode Island, has one of the highest concentrations of startups in the world – highly successful enterprises that are attracting attention of global investors and companies.
This seminar will discuss some of the key lessons of the Israeli innovation ecosystem and its success, including - structuring the business venture - preventing and/or mitigating conflict and friction between founders - management of relationships with investors, employees and others - common mistakes in early stages and identifying and protecting critical assets (including IP).
The speakers will share Israel’s experience and some of the most common issues that arise when counseling a startup client, as well as unique opportunities for collaboration between Rhode Island and Israeli startups and entrepreneurs.
