About this event

Dear Community,

We invite you to our next special event on September 19th!

This event is going to be a twofold special:

1. PART - Workshop: "Legal Basics: Employee Incentive Strategies Each Startup Should Consider"

The war for talent is more than a buzzword. In a time of rapid digital transformation, this has become increasingly evident for every player within the startup ecosystem. But only great teams make a great startup. The more important it is to intelligently incentivize key employees and reward continuity, identification and dedication.

But which market-proven instruments are out there and what are their pluses and minuses? Shares, options, RSUs, virtuals? Or simply the good old cash bonus?

Join us for some profound and focussed insights from the legal practitioners’ perspective, followed by an open legal Q&A session, hosted by our partners from BMH Bräutigam. And find out that law cannot only make the difference but at times also be exciting.
