Eric Gonzalez and Ross Mayfield are the initiator of a “Barcamp for Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who want to learn the basics of legal and financial details of starting a new company”.

As a former Finance Manager and now co-founder of a company that works in the environment (and as well very involved in a startup too), I’m very interested to attend!

The format looks good: Eric and Ross have inviting 3 CEO Founders, 3 angel investors and 3 Legal, Accounting and HR professionals who can help answer questions, walk you through the basics of:

  1. Legal structure of the company (C Corp vs. LLC vs. S Corp)
  2. Funding (angel vs. Venture capital vs. bootstrap)
  3. HR and Operations (Benefits, payroll etc.)

Really the basics for an entrepreneur, we all know that!

I think this kind of event are really important for startup entrepreneur, as their status is a kind of “fragile” one, so many risks and question marks at this stage!

Any advice is good and real experts in specific areas is a better concept than somebody giving global advice without the appropriate vibes as I did see in a previous StartupCamp in Paris.

Happy to join anyway guys and see you in Palo Alto.

Vysr is the sponsor of the event.

Time to go!

***UPDATE***

Missed the event for some stupid reason.

Well, see you next one?

Grrrrr.😦

Hi Phil,

No problem, thanks for the coverage on your blog. It’s a pity we weren’t able to benefit from your contribution, but we will likely be holding another one sometime after the summer season. I’m thinking not just a revisit of the topics we discussed, as it would be neat to see the progress some of the guys have made. If you’d like to read up a brief summary of the camp, please check out the latest post on my blog.

Thanks again, and I hope we can meet up sometime soon.

Cheers,

Eric
