2016 - 2017 Emerging Company Roundtable Series
September 2016 - May 2017

Saul Ewing LLP is pleased to announce the return of its popular Emerging Company Roundtable Series. The Emerging Company Roundtable Series is one of the cornerstones of Saul Ewing’s RAMP initiative (Resources, Access and Mentoring Program), a new firm wide initiative aimed at providing emerging companies the support and practical direction they need to move their businesses forward.

The Emerging Company Roundtables are a twice a month peer-to-peer discussions that provide insights and valuable information into the early stages of a successful start-up. The series facilitates discussions between like-minded individuals covering issues essential to early stage companies. Last year’s Roundtables attracted entrepreneurs from throughout the state and tackled topics such as raising money, perfecting the pitch and negotiating agreements.
