Content Highlights

In this session, we are more than happy to have Mr. Padraig Walsh sharing about the necessary details when reading a contract and better utilization of contract as the risk management tool for the start-up with case studies covering the Non-Disclosure Agreement and Service Agreement. A clearly-written agreement can help the start-up avoid drawn-out arbitration, give assurance and satisfaction to all parties. This event will be especially useful and helpful to the CUHK entrepreneurs and other like-minded individuals in starting the business relationship on the right foot.
