Berlin’s has a new “startup accelerator”: The Berlin Startup Academy. It is not your typical accelerator though focusing explicitly on the intersection between the startup and corporate worlds, instigating knowledge exchange and leveraging these increasingly overlapping networks.
Founded by veteran Christoph Räthke, who can tell you war stories about his time in both the corporate and startup worlds, the academy already has a notable cast of mentors.
Come meet some of them at the next BSA event on August 8th!
Find our why founding a startup is not just about brilliant ideas, Club Mate, passion, tech blog reading, St Oberholzand much more great-sounding stuff you overhear when buying lunch at the Currywurst joint on Rosenthaler Platz.
Christian Musfeldt from Osborne Clarke, an international law firm specializing in startup law, and Daniel Frischkorn from Ecovis will explain you why founding a company is not only your entry into the world of potential fortune, but also into the sinister Realm of Legal Constraints and Tax Requirements.
While you can rest assured that Christoph and his crew will make this a fun experience, the subject matter involves hardly exciting, but unquestionably important points of founding a company such as:
- balance sheet setup
- employment contracts
- Terms & Conditions
- Geschäftsführergehalt v Gewinnausschüttung
- term sheet clauses
For practical reasons - namely, the sheer density of terms specific to the German tax system that will have to be examined -, keynote and discussion about tax topics will be in German.
