The fallout of the 2008 global financial crisis witnessed the start of many well-known companies – WhatsApp, Slack, Uber, and Instagram – worth hundreds of millions of dollars. While the COVID-19 pandemic has caused economic uncertainty and changed the way we do business, you shouldn’t hold off from starting your side hustle or growing your burgeoning business.

In our latest AYP workshop, Lowndes Jordan Partner Duncan Coats and Associate Liam Closey will cover off the legal fundamentals in getting your business started and funded, including guidance on common pitfalls that founders can run into early on in the business life cycle.

This is a highly anticipated event so make sure you nab yourself a ticket today!
