THE BUSINESS OF STARTUPS
(LAWA-4065) - 1 UNIT

The Business of Startups will provide students with the business backdrop required to effectively navigate the world of startups as an attorney. To represent tech startups, attorneys will want to become familiar with the operations and mechanics of a startup, including: the process of raising capital; division of equity; the role of incubators; startup metrics; startup practices; coding basics; and more. This course will introduce key terminology to students so that they can converse fluently with startup founders and investors. The course will culminate in a "Demo Day" where students will collaborate and pitch a startup idea to the class. This course is less focused on law per se and instead is focused more on business fundamentals. Grading is P/NP. Classes will take place during the first seven weeks of the semester only.
