Getting a company off the ground is about more securing funding. It’s about getting it ready for market, and brings with it a whole host of legal, business, and marketing issues that could determine whether your company gets sued, audited by the IRS, or flubs its rollout.
In recognition of this burgeoning need, law firms, financial advisors, marketing firms, and a whole host of other entities are rolling out programs specifically for entrepreneurs. Here are a few of them.
