Two one-day seminars next week will get your start-up kicked off legally and socially

Emerging Company Bootcamp

One of the scariest parts of getting a start-up off the ground is navigating the legalese of corporate filings, intellectual property, and employment law. Louisiana’s Baker Donelson law firm has partnered with the Louisiana Technology Park to offer a one day “emerging company bootcamp” focused on getting your start-up off the ground legally. David Rieveschl from the Baker Donelson New Orleans office will be the lead attorney for the Boot Camp, which is part of Baton Rouge Entrepreneurship Week.

The group is inviting all entrepreneurs, small business owners, or those interested in potentially starting a company to attend on Friday, November 11th from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm at the Louisiana Technology Park in Baton Rouge. The topics to be covered include intellectual property, labor and employment, accounting and back office basics, contract basics, tax incentives, and venture capital. The full day workshop is FREE and includes breakfast and lunch. Seating is limited and registration is required so sign-up by clicking here or email to attend.

Social Media for Small Business

Another big hurtle for small businesses and start-ups is breaking through all of the buzzwords and conflicting advice related to social media. Conversations, LLC is hosting a full day workshop on Saturday, November 12th in New Orleans to kickstart social media engagement for small businesses.

Session I will cover the intro basics: setting up Twitter and Facebook pages, customizing the look of the pages, and beginning to interact with your current and potential future customers. Session II is set to cover creating a social media strategy, analytics, pre-scheduling posts, and organizing promotions on Twitter and Facebook. The workshop will be taught by Megan Hargroder and Lauren McCabe, two local social media all-stars. Because Megan is a regular SBN writer, she’s offering a VERY special discount to our readers.
