The workshop will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 28, from noon to 1 p.m. The workshop is free and is open to the public and will take place remotely via Zoom. Participants must register by visiting fredonia.edu/incubator or directly at bit.ly/3iCYctd. Registered participants will receive a Zoom invite via email prior to the event.

Borello will offer an overview of key issues facing start-up companies including a discussion of IP issues (patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets) and corporate formation issues. The workshop will also cover information on entity choice considerations and how to structure a business to increase efficiency in day-to-day operations, as well as, anticipate funding hurdles.
