一直都有这样一个说法,如果你想在美国开一家公司,那么你最先要找的是一个好的律师和一个好的会计师。

今年的创业圈几件轶事:

国内,《就算老公一毛钱股份都没拿到,在我心里,他依然是最牛逼的创业者》刷爆朋友圈,大意是:一个创新工场投资的游戏公司,眼看快上市了,结果技术合伙人和CEO因为股权分配争执,被要求净身出户。结局很是悲催。但好在这个哥们有个文笔一流的妻子,在自己的公众号里发了篇选秀节目里歌手身世一样的长文,给老公谋求新的工作。

结果是,虽然公司和CEO的信息被扒拉出来,各种讨伐声讨随之而来,但结局并没有反转。有个文笔上佳的老婆固然幸运,有个专业的律师才能真的起到实质性的作用啊,如果一早就签了股权合同,这出戏就不会有了。

在美国呢,也有很多闹剧。大家都知道今年Uber特别衰,女员工说有职场性骚扰,司机到处在抗议,乘客大规模卸载,被谷歌因为盗取无人驾驶专利告上法庭,甚至闹到了CEO无限期休假……其实Uber一直都是美国联邦法院的常客,2015年就收到了50张联邦法院的传票(Lyft收到的不到其三分之一,而同样共享经济的Airbnb只收到5张)。究其原因是Uber没有打磨好各个细节,就“蒙眼狂奔”,一切以增长为导向,不断地和法律法规发生冲突,从而成为了法院的常客,科技圈的众矢之的。

听说这些事件发生后,Uber的第一个选择总是花大价钱雇佣一支律师团队,小编想说,你早干啥去了。

创业,就像是踩钢丝,风险和回报同样诱人,为了保障自己的安全,为自己和公司设置防火墙,懂法!比啥都重要!有事提前找律师,绝对比自己事后在家捶胸顿足强

继普创和安永上次的合作后,这次我们又携手知名律所Stradling Yocca Carlson & Rauth,为大家组了一个法律局,手把手教你给自己,给团队设置创业必备的防火墙。

如果你是职场小白也没关系,说不定老板哪天就要跟你谈股权或者是放冷箭,普通人的职场里随处也有明枪暗箭,陷阱和挑战,还是不能不防。
