Workbar Member Event: 

Lauren Clark, author of Crafty Bastards, heard that Workbar has craft beer on tap. She was impressed. So impressed that she’s coming to talk about our favorite beverage on Wednesday, November 5th at 6:00 PM! She’ll read from her book, share her beer knowledge, and sip a few pints with us! This is a BYOB event, as all beer discussions are better when your glass is (at least) half full. Bring beer for yourself, or some to share. Homebrews are especially welcome.
Lauren will also be signing books. Books will be for sale (cash only) at the event.

Workbar Event: 

In the excitement of starting your business, it’s easy to lose sight of the importance of thoughtfully splitting the equity pie with co-founders to avoid messy situations down the road. We know that talking about how to split the pie can be uncomfortable, but it’s not nearly as uncomfortable as the tension that will arise if you don’t have the conversation up-front. In this class, we’ll approach the issue head-on and walk you through the various factors to consider when discussing and negotiating equity splits among co-founders.
