St. George veterans of military service know that boot camp can be a transformative experience. Young people enter boot camp and in a relatively short time are shaped into military personnel ready to protect their nation.
An upcoming Utah business boot camp will operate on a similar principle, except that leaders of emerging businesses will be outfitted with knowledge and tools useful in protecting and nurturing a company.
The debut MountainWest Capital Network Business Boot Camp takes place March 27 in Salt Lake City. You can find contact information in the link below.
The “focus in on fostering business development,” the chair of the event said. So leaders of young companies will get instruction, advice, tips, tactics, tools and more to nurture and grow their businesses.
Some of the established industry leaders invited to speak will address topics tailored for smaller firms (up to $500,000 in revenue) such as Basic Training for Start-ups, Early Stage Financial Issues, as well as discussions of marketing, effective IT strategies, equity financing and more.
Companies in the $500,000 to $5 million revenue range might well be interested in topics such as Managing Business Risks, Investment Banking Basics, as well as conversations about equity compensation and ways in which entrepreneurs can protect their intellectual property.
Of course, one of the most effective ways to protect business property is to have a relationship with a law firm experienced in safeguarding client rights and interests in litigation and negotiations. For many businesses, it also makes sense to work with attorneys who understand mediation and arbitration processes.
