About this event

Five Common Legal Mistakes that Startup Founders Make

You get a term sheet from your top-choice VC fund, and you’re thrilled! You then talk with your lawyer, and the hype goes only downhill from there.

Did you file your 83(b)? Did you sign an IP agreement with all your hires? What do you mean you gave options without a stock plan?!

If this rings a bell – or if you never want it to – this session is for you. Drawing on his 10+ years as a corporate lawyer, Stepan will share tips and insights on five common legal mistakes he’s seen founders make… some of which have been fatal to their fundraising plans.

After practicing corporate law for 10+ years and being counsel to over a 100 starups, Stepan Khzrtian closed his private practice to build technology that allows founders navigate their legal journey with confidence. His startup, Corpora, helps founders close rounds faster by avoiding early mistakes, automating the legal backend, and connecting startups with top-tier attorneys.
