You spent a lot of time and money to start your business and probably even more to keep it running. You have accumulated many physical assets such as buildings, machinery and equipment. And, you probably have even more intangible assets such as accounts receivables, copyrights, computer programs, trademarks, patents, and yes, maybe even something as simple as a recipe.
These assets can be compromised through risks such as divorce, poor partnerships agreements, and dishonest employees. Be smart and discover what you can do to protect these hard earned assets. In this session you will hear strategies you can take to protect and keep what is yours.
Don’t miss hearing about:
Protecting your personal and business assets
Trade Secrets and how they may apply to your business
Confidentiality agreements and how to execute one
Protecting non-physical assets such as ideas through copyrights and trademarks
Types of insurance and the protections it can offer
Non-compete and non solicitation agreements
This workshop is targeted to business owners who have already formed their business entity, company officers, executive directors, and any person in the process of creating a new business with at least six (6) months prior business experience.
