Negotiating Your First Set of Legal Docs

Hosted By: Torys

In the 2nd installment of the Women Founder Series, Fenwick partner Kristine Di Bacco will join Konata Lake, the head of Torys’ Emerging Companies and VC practice, to deconstruct the most common documents you will encounter when building your startup—offering their perspectives on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border.

They will simplify financing and equity contracts, incorporation docs, shareholder agreements, and more—and explain what agreeing to them actually means for your business. Kristine and Konata will also share how to navigate the negotiation process around some of these documents and how to avoid common mistakes founders make. Attendees will receive takeaway materials to action the insights they have learned.
