A founder enters your office and wants your help in setting up/financing/exiting a business. What are you doing? Instead of reinventing the wheel by manually compiling relevant primary sources, the best starting point is with secondary sources, including treaties, law review articles or state websites. This guide provides resources for three of the most important life cycle events of most start-ups: training, financing and exit strategies. This guide does not address employment rights, intellectual property rights, security or tax issues. Education involves the selection and formation of a business unit. Due to the strong growth of start-ups, this guide focuses on business creation. In terms of financing, the business is financed, usually by convertible bonds, fishing investors or even crowdfunding.

This guide contains links to current sources of awareness. These sources include information websites (free and subscription), video sites and event calendars.

The creation, financing and sale of start-ups are transactions, which makes it very important to understand the transaction and that with good standard documents with explanations. Finding good examples of documents can also be the most difficult part of a new employee`s job. New employees will not know whether examples in a company`s system contain or exclude relevant provisions because they are not familiar with the documents.
Even if the company has models, a new employee may not know how to adapt the model for the customer. This guide advances to provide new start-up practitioners with some resources to overcome these barriers, including secondary sources, primary sources, and sample documents and tools. This guide contains primary sources, secondary sources, sample forms and online tools for each of the three themes: education, funding and exit strategies.
