Please join us for our next monthly Venture Law Meetup Webinar. Partner Tom Reems will moderate a discussion between partners Alan Friel and Glenn Brown entitled “Why Data Privacy, Security and Asset Management Are Crucial for Start-Ups”. The panel will discuss general privacy laws that require privacy policies and limitations on data use/disposition and how they apply to start-ups. This is particularly important since we are seeing robust privacy and data security reps and warranties in investments and acquisitions for those companies headed down that path. We have also seen companies unsellable because they build a business around a data model that is illegal or where they did not give proper notice at collection. We will touch on the key implications of these developments as well, including new California and Virginia privacy law thresholds that a number of companies are headed towards and what this might mean for being acquired.
This complimentary webinar series aims to equip executive officers and founders of new start-ups with the knowledge and tools needed to navigate the various aspects of launching and growing a new venture.
