A founder is a person who assists in the formation of a new business and then continues to devote a significant amount of time and resources to the operation of business once it has been formed, often becoming one of the officers and directors–founders play a pivotal role in the success of any new business.
This book delves into the motivational traits of prospective entrepreneurs, the role that entrepreneurs play in launching new businesses, the pre-formation duties and liabilities of founders, and their relationships and agreements with other members of the founding group. The book also examines the role that founders have on the organizational culture of their firms. This book is a must-have guide for anyone thinking about launching a new business, for attorneys and other professionals providing advice to their clients, and academics teaching entrepreneurship classes.
