Featured Webinars

Early stage support can make all the difference and help guide new and scaling ventures to build their business from a concept to reality. Understanding the laws around deal-making, as it relates to setting up a business, making agreements with co-founders, hiring new staff, and signing customer agreements, can save a lot of time, money and effort as founders grow their businesses.

In this “train the trainer” webinar, the experts at DealPrep Inc. broke down the basics of incorporation, founder loans and investor share classes, as well as the best practices when negotiating these legal concepts in real life. By watching this webinar you’ll learn a valuable understanding of the legal concepts behind company formation decisions, that you can take back to your center and share with your ventures.

In a matter of weeks, the entrepreneur support world has gone virtual-first. As part of the transition, organizations are taking a close look at how to deliver and add value beyond in-person support within their four walls. Let’s take a look at the strategies explored, tools employed, and lessons learned as support organizations seek to best serve their communities in these uncertain times.

COVID-19 has created a new reality that will require adjustment from our standard way of working. On a positive note, constraints tend to inspire innovation, so we wanted to bring together our members for a discussion on how to continue to operate and perhaps even thrive during the global pandemic.

During this session, we discussed the opportunities and challenges the COVID-19 pandemic is creating for businesses, and outline strategies for organizations to support entrepreneurs. The panelists will offered perspectives on facility operations, the well-being of clients and staff, and the financial well-being of programs and clients’ businesses.

InIBA members shared what solutions they’ve implemented, what’s working, what’s not working, and what they’re still trying to solve.
