    The Entrepeneur's Beginning Startup Checklist

    Many beginning entrepreneurs find that having a checklist to work from helps organize the tasks that need to be accomplished. Basic checklists like the following are used to help get the ball rolling. Note this is not a comprehensive list and there is some item overlap. The inclusions in the list, and the substantive acts and contents of each document on the list, can change depending on the jurisdiction. Also, while this list is enumerated, the enumeration is for convenience only. Different individuals will reach different starting points depending on the moment of inspiration.

    1. Comprehensive Business Plan (how will you make money)
    2. IP Protection in place, including some or all of, trademark(s) registrations applied for, proper trademark marking of goods and services, name availability search(es), copyright registration(s) applied for, patent application(s) filed, work for hire and assignment agreements for employees and contractors executed, assignments on record at the appropriate recording agency, patentability search and freedom of operation opinion
    3. Nondisclosure agreements ready for investors, evaluators, consultants, and other third-parties to sign
    4. Business formation documents in place, usually including incorporation/certificate of formation, articles of incorporation/membership agreement, first organizational meeting and adoption of bylaws, issue certificates of ownership/share certificates and update register shareholders agreement/membership agreement(including clauses for assigning intellectual property, work for hire, nondisclosure, noncompetition, and, among others, buy sell), buy-sale and valuation agreement, technology transfer agreement

    How Lemeridian funding service  grant me a loan!!!

    Hello everyone, I'm Lea Paige Matteo from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to lemeridian funding service for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, I was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, I was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to Le_meridian funding service and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Lisa, I was also granted a loan of $216,000.00 So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 1.9% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact Le_meridian funding service. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, I'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces.
