Law 101 for Social Entrepreneurs

All Events
Tuesday April 5, 2016, 4:30 p.m. — 6:00 p.m.
LEPH (60 College St) Room 216

One of the most common questions asked of Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs: Are you a non-profit or a for-profit? In today’s environment, that question is much harder to answer, and understanding your options is crucial. This workshop will be led by Eric Fischer from Withers Bergman LLP law firm, who will discuss the following topics:

  • Non-profits: What does it mean to be a 501c3? Real-life case studies will be presented of unusual 501c3 activities to demonstrate the things you can, and cannot do as a 501c3.
  • For-profit or Hybrid Models: What are the options? Relevant case studies will be discussed to show the different choices
  • How does your choice affect your potential funding sources?
  • What documents do you need to understand to register your organization?
