Startup Fast-Track – when you just need to do it! - Week 5
You’ve got an idea, and you think it could be BIG!
You want to turn this into a business, and you need
to get going FAST! There’s a lot to get done –
recruiting a top notch team, building the prototype,
acquiring first customers, developing a scalable
business model, raising venture capital, and a
whole lot more. So what are the key decisions you need to make, and how can you use these to fast-track your startup, and leave the competition eating your dust?

This week will focus on "What legal structures for your startup can accelerate your time to money, which ones can stop you in your tracks?"

• How do you pull together a team capable of creating, marketing & selling your product/service?
• How will you recruit and manage employees and consultants that work for you? How do you retain control of the IP they create? What options do you have for non-cash compensation?

• How do you figure out how much money you are going to need to get your startup off the ground? What would a first pass P & L and Cash Flow look like for your venture?
