Business Entity Formation
& Intellectual Property Rights
Workshops Recap 
The Pace University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) teamed up with the City Bar Justice Center to host volunteer attorneys for two workshops in March. The first was Business Entity Formation, which discussed the advantages and disadvantages of the various business structure options.The second was Intellectual Property Rights for Entrepreneurs, which highlighted the intricacies of trademarks, copyrights, patents, and trade secrets. The extensive Q&A at the end of each workshop was a participant favorite, as it allowed attendees to ask questions relevant to their own businesses.
