Pinsky Law New Venture Development Scholarship
Pinsky Law is dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs and startup companies by providing them with essential legal services. As a part of their commitment, they have created and maintain a dedicated section of legal resources for startups on their website. Pinsky Law recognizes the challenges that come with establishing and running a new business venture, and the significant financial commitments that founders need to make. Many entrepreneurs rely on personal finances, such as mortgaging their homes, cashing in their RRSPs, and using credit cards to finance the initial operations of their startups. While these resources may be critical to the startup’s success, they often come at a high emotional and financial cost.
