2013 The Entrepreneurial Thing Roundtable (Chicago, IL)
Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum & Nagelberg LLP partner Sarah Bernstein and associates Greg Demo and Matt Jones participated in "The Entrepreneurship Thing," an event sponsored by the Chicago Booth Entrepreneurial Roundtable and The University of Chicago Women's Business Group on November 4, 2013. This event covered not only the nuts and bolts of entrepreneurship, from raising money for a start-up to answering legal, tax and accounting questions, but also taught participants how to navigate the emotional highs and lows that come with an entrepreneurial enterprise.
Sarah headed up a roundtable discussion centering on basic legal terms while Matt led a roundtable discussion concentrating on employment contracts, hiring staff and general human resources. Greg participated in a panel discussion entitled, "Naked TED Talks - Serial Entrepreneurs." The panel also discussed top ways entrepreneurs get themselves into trouble as well as buying a business out of bankruptcy.
