About: Steve Ducommun of Perkins Coie will lead this workshop on equity and hiring for startups. We'll discuss how companies issue stock, including founder’s equity, and discuss vesting agreements and incentive stock options. Then we'll cover corporate governance structures and how consultants and stockholders fit into the picture. Finally, we'll summarize the basics of labor and employment law, including employment contracts, confidentiality agreements, consulting and advisory agreements, and employee compensation. Lunch will be served.

This event is part of UChicago Innovation Fest, a month-long celebration of entrepreneurship and discovery around the University of Chicago.
