In this webinar, you will learn a methodical approach for:
  • determining whether you are personally ready to make the leap to join a startup,
  • how to analyze a startup to ensure it has a decent shot at success,
  • how to best leverage your talents and skills to maximize your stake, while evaluating your offer to ensure your payout is sufficient,
  • recognizing warning signs and flagging inappropriate “requirements,” and
  • a little-known HBS resource that provides a birds-eye view on startups in your area.
