Let’s Make a Deal: Negotiation for Impact Entrepreneurs

Scott Smith and Leslie Keil, Hanson Bridgett LLP

There are hundreds of companies participating at SOCAP14 and each is likely to have its own path towards growth and sustainability. This highly interactive session will explore one hypothetical company’s path and some of the legal and financial pitfalls along the way. The session will begin with the story of a fairly typical social impact company and its founders, as well as some of the options available to them in terms of growing towards scale. From here, the audience will be divided into groups for a mock-negotiation concerning those various options, revealing some best practices as well as hazards to be avoided on the road towards sustainability.
