We have had the pleasure of assisting Net Zero Vermont and are proud to see that as of July they launched their Sustainable Montpelier 2030 Design Competition. This is an ‘architectural design competition’ with a $10,000 prize to the winner. As stated on the homepage of their website, Net Zero is hoping to ‘attract top talent to help create a low-carbon, small-city future’.’ We wish Net Zero and their contestants of the 2030 Design Competition the best of luck.

This month’s focus is on the basics of owning a company, as the Eventbrite page indicates:
Founders are usually so busy developing the business that they don’t give much thought to the company. Corporate details can be dry, but the mechanics of the company are at the center of the relationship among founders, key employees, and investors. This program will cover initial ownership structure, creating a capitalization table, how company ownership evolves in a growing startup, and issuing options and direct equity to employees (and choosing which to issue)
The event includes food and beverage and time to network with others. And, it’s an added bonus that there is no cost to attend. Register here and reserve your spot.
