Launched with a grant from the John S. & James L. Knight Foundation in 2014, the The Venture Law Project has already helped over 450 qualified startups and creatives by matching them with pro bono attorneys who are helping them avoid costly pitfalls at the early stages of their businesses. Whether it’s help with business formation, incorporation, corporate filling requirements, drafting key legal contracts, negotiating lease agreements, licensing, tax advice, raising seed funding or registering copyrights and trademarks, the Venture Law Project has a rolodex of lawyers available to help entrepreneurs find solutions. “We have an ambitious project,” says Venture Law Project’s Diana Acevedo. “We’re here to increase the level of connectedness and organizational support for entrepreneurs, share resources and help startups grow while creating a solid foundation in Miami.”;
