Leading San Francisco Startup Law Firm, Putnam Gordon P.C., Announces San Francisco Startup Event on Equity Issues for Silicon Valley Entrepreneurs

Jason Putnam Gordon, a leading attorney for San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley startups, is proud to announce an informative public event on startups and equity funding. Properly structuring equity is crucial to the birth of any startup, and the event will guide participants through many of the key issues involving equity and compensation for the key founders, investors, and other startup entrepreneurs present and participating during a firm’s early history.

“The excitement of launching a San Francisco Bay Area startup should not blind participants to the pitfalls of improperly structuring equity relationships,” explained Jason Putnam Gordon, principal attorney at Putnam Gordon P.C., a law firm for startups based in San Francisco and serving the entire Bay Area, including Silicon Valley. He continued, “This informative event will guide participants through many of the key issues involving how best to structure equity to compensate and/or reward early participants in a venture.”
