Legal Bootcamp – How to Start & Grow Your Business webinar is for entrepreneurs early in their business venture. It will be helpful for those that haven’t launched yet, as well as those that have been in operation for under 3 years.

We’ll answer questions like:

  • When should I register for HST?
  • Are contracts really that important?
  • How do I hire my first employee?
  • Are website terms of use necessary?
  • What should I do when leasing space for my business?
