Basics Of Starting Up

We are happy to announce the March 2017 edition of Startup Saturday Lucknow themed:
“Basics of Starting Up”.

Date : 18th March, 2017
Time : 05:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Venue : Incuspaze, Hazratganj, Lucknow

Basics of Starting Up:
Paul Graham(Co-Founder, YCombinator) once said: “You need three things to create a successful startup: to start with good people, to make something customers actually want, and to spend as little money as possible. Most startups that fail do it because they fail at one of these. A startup that does all three will probably succeed.” 

With 2 editions of Headstart’s How to Start a Startup? behind us covering 2 of the crucial pain-points of founders; Idea Validation and Building a great team, we turn our attention to another vital issue, that majority of the founders face, actually starting up. 

To combat this and guide our fellow entrepreneurs, the theme for the March edition of the 6-month long series is, Basics of Starting Up. The edition where the nitty-gritty's of starting up, from the legal compliances to a 101 on Incorporation, from understanding your equity and ESOP arrangements to Employee and Vendor contracts, the initiative will have it all. 

Ignorance is often touted to be a bliss, but for founders, not being aware of the extensive business regulations in India can be an expensive business later on, and one they would like to avoid. To understand the nuances of the law and the multiple threads of it, join Headstart Lucknow at Incuspaze on 18th March, 2017.
