Startups are increasingly facing regulatory challenges at early stages. How should founders staff up to meet those challenges?
About this Event
Many of today's biggest innovators - from Airbnb to Uber to DoorDash - face massive regulatory pushback. While late stage companies can afford to hire powerful lobbyists, what are the options for early stage startups? With so many startups tackling regulated industries (transportation, proptech, energy, fintech, etc), it's important to be equipped from the early days. Come hear from the experts that help startups get smart on policy & regulation.
