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!


Missed the event for some stupid reason.
