TDS’ Start-ups and Emerging Companies Group understands entrepreneurship. From our Quick Guide to Business Start-ups, or our Guide to Financial Assistance Programs, for sources of non-dilutive funding, to our relationships with angel and venture capital investors, our lawyers are passionate about start-ups and emerging companies and have the knowledge and networks to back it up.
Our Start-ups and Emerging Companies Group can assist entrepreneurs with all of the legal services they require on their path to success, including company formation, capital structure and founders’ agreements, start-up documents (including NDAs, stock vesting, stock option and shareholder agreements), intellectual property and technology-related legal needs, governance agreements, capital formation (including angel, venture and private equity investments), relationships and agreements with strategics, and acquisitions and exits. TDS is a member of Innovate Manitoba Inc. and supports Innovate Manitoba’s programs, including the VentureChallenge early-stage venture competition, the LaunchPad entrepreneur boot camps, and PitchDay. TDS also is the exclusive law firm sponsor of the technology incubator, North Forge Technology Exchange. Once our emerging company client’s businesses have fully matured, we look forward to seeing them at the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), as TDS is a service provider sponsor of EO.
