    Presented by Marlana Carroll, Digital Marketing Strategist, Grapevine Marketing
    Tuesday, October 21, 2014, noon to 1:00pm at 844 Elm Street, Manchester

    Setting up your business structure is one of the most important decisions that you'll make when establishing your business. Your choice has both legal and financial implications for you and your business down the road. And although it's a decision that can be undone, it can be both difficult and costly to your company. Running a business without an operating agreement can also impact your bottom line and the ultimate success of your company. This workshop will cover the basics of business entity types and how the operating agreement fits in.

    Setting up your company structure is one of the most important decisions that you will have to make when establishing your business – having a solid foundation is critical. Your choice has legal, financial, and business implications for you and your company both near term and down the road. You have to consider issues such as what type of entity should my company be? In which jurisdiction should my new entity be formed? What entity governance matters are important? How are those issues addressed? What is an operating agreement and do I need one? This workshop will cover these and other important issues to consider in forming and organizing a corporation or limited liability company.
