The ‘Small Business Bootcamp’ webinar series features presentations from leading finance, operations, manufacturing and legal industry luminaries including Todd Stockbauer, Chris Neary, Catherine Stanton and others who together have helped numerous companies navigate the road to successful growth and profitable operations.
The ‘Small Business Bootcamp’ webinar series includes the following events:
Friday, June 26 – 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. (Mountain) ‘Financing and Operations for Outdoor Goods, Textiles and Apparel Manufacturing Companies’
Building and scaling a manufacturing business comes with specific strategies and challenges—seasonality, knowing your competition, up-front costs and cash-flow issues due to slow-paying retailers. In this webinar, Todd Stockbauer, former CFO of ski apparel brand Spyder, along with Vertical Source and Neve Designs Owner Chris Neary, will cover topics such as branding, inventory risks, logistics, warehousing and financial considerations specific to manufacturing in the apparel and outdoor goods space.
Friday, July 10 at 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. (Mountain) – ‘Operations, Compliance and Finance for building brands in the Alcohol Beverage Industry’
Todd Stockbauer will lead this session with industry guests. Topics to be covered include: capital, distribution and the overall culture of an organization.
Friday, July 17 at 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. (Mountain) – ‘Covering all the Bases: Building a Great Founders’ Agreement’
One of the critical things cofounders should consider when starting a new business together is forming some sort of founders’ agreement. A good agreement and the process by which cofounders determine what will ultimately be included in the agreement can minimize the likelihood of serious issues that could jeopardize the company later down the road. In this webinar, startup attorney and mediator Catherine Stanton of Stanton Law Firm LLC will talk about founders’ agreements, how to discuss company goals and arrangements with your cofounders in the course of forming an agreement, how to incorporate sticky language into an agreement–such as dealing with covenants, establishing guidelines for firing a founder and much more. P2Binvestor CEO Krista Morgan will join Stanton and facilitate a question-and-answer session at the end of the webinar.
Friday, August 14 at 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. (Mountain) – ‘Financing and Operations for Natural Foods and Product Businesses’
Topics will include branding, trademarking, knowing the market, competition, customers, grocery store placement and other special considerations. Presenters will also explore inventory risks, production/manufacturing, selling through distributors and finance.
