Event Details

It is said that business partnerships are like marriage: easy to get into, messy to get out of. Typically, entrepreneurs require something only a partner can bring to the table, such as money, contacts or a skill set. Sometimes an entrepreneur needs the confidence that can only be provided by working with someone else. Often entrepreneurs spend more time interviewing and assessing the fit of an employee than a prospective partner and end up regretting getting into business with their partner.

Jeff Dennis, serial entrepreneur, lawyer, author and Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin, and Tracy Hooey, a partner at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin, will address the issues that you should consider before jumping into bed with a partner.
