About the Certificate Course on Legal and Procedural Aspects of Startups
“Giving legal wings to your business ideas”
In recent years, the Indian startup ecosystem has taken off and has matured. Driven by factors such as availability of funding, consolidation activities by a number of firms, evolving technology space and a burgeoning demand within the domestic market has led to the emergence of startups.
But when it comes to actually implement an idea of startup then it is easy said than done. A startup faces various challenges including the legal aspects involved therein. One would require information on requisite regulatory approvals, various funding sources, taxation implications and most importantly, contractual, labour and other issues that often act as speed breakers in one’s quest for swift execution of a business idea.
That precisely defines the objective of this course: ‘How’ to do what you want to do!
This course aims to provide a one-stop guide for the new entrepreneurs or professionals right from the moment of generation of business idea to the actual conceptualization of the same in reality.
This course is a comprehensive “deep dive” into the crucial law-sensitive issues faced in the process of launching, financing, and growing a new venture. Attempts shall be made to pay special attention to ventures making use of innovative technologies and business models.
