Founders agreements, entity formation, and trademark filings were the topics of discussion for our Genius Founders in the All Things Legal Phase of our Alumni Venture Seed Fund. Over the past five weeks, our entrepreneurs immersed themselves in a legal boot camp designed to help them understand the elements of basic contracts, cap tables, legal frameworks, and how to protect themselves from personal liability.
