Sponsored Event | January.19.2018 | 12pm - 8pm (Central Europe Standard Time)Orrick Düsseldorf
On January 19, 2018, we will host of young founders and corporate entrepreneurs from SmartUp! – The WHU Entrepreneurship Network for a knowledge sharing session and an introduction to venture capital deal terms in our Düsseldorf office. The session will be part of SmartUp!’s first city tour to Düsseldorf.
“SmartUp! is a well-established and successful entrepreneurship network. After they have successfully established startup tours to Berlin, Hamburg and Düsseldorf we are happy that they are now coming to Düsseldorf and will gladly share our insights with respect to legal pitfalls to avoid in the early phases of a young company and how to protect the company’s ability to attract venture capital financing later on,” says Dr. Sven Greulich, partner in our Technology Companies Practice and a WHU alumni himself.
