Other topics that Laura may address if there is time:

  • Do you need a business entity?
  • How do I file with the Texas Secretary of State?
  • Why is an operating agreement important?
  • How should you raise money?
  • Do you need licenses or permits?
  • What should you use insurance to cover?
  • Should you consider certification as a Historically Underutilized Business (HUB)?
