Start-up legal training sessions

The Betagroup Coworking Brussels and Field Fisher Waterhouse have partnered to bring all the Betagroup community a new series of free training sessions covering practical legal issues for start-ups, with a particular emphasis on the internet and web industry.

The purpose is to provide the participants with a basic  knowledge of essential legal issues in corporate, IT, IP and commercial contracts.

Each session conducted in English will address a specific topic and will be presented by lawyers specialised in their field. The presentations will be to the point, non-academic and will handle the subject with pragmatic approach, based on previous experience.

The sessions will be followed by a Q&A and a drink where you will be able to ask your questions and share experiences with speakers and participants.
