Innovate UK is partnering with Stephenson Harwood to provide practical insight into:

  • How your business can prepare for investment.
  • The legal factors considered by investors when seeking seed investment.
  • Key legal considerations to protect your company and your intellectual property from the beginning of your journey.
  • Additional sources of income or relief including tax credits.

For good reason founders often focus most of their time on growing their business, refining and marketing their products as well as working tirelessly to secure investment.

Often legal considerations can be put to the side, but this initial session will provide practical guidance on how to avoid some of the most common pitfalls that Stephenson Harwood see their early-stage clients make.

We will be joined by business partners and clients of Stephenson Harwood to provide you with practical advice on how to identify legal risks, how to mitigate those risks and how to set your business up for future investment and commercial opportunities.
