    OEN Workshop: Tax Issues for Startups

    Does the word "taxes" have you reacting with a blank, questionable stare?

    When making a list of priorities, startups tend to list taxes right above, "getting a plant service for the office." As with most startups, there may be a significant period of time before the business becomes profitable. However, there are business decisions you make today that can greatly affect your income tax situation in the future. These decisions include what type of entity your company wants to be, where your company wants to be located or even how your company obtains sales. Also, there are other types of taxes besides income, e. g. sales, payroll and B & O, that can distract you from the beginning. David Uslan will help get you through the startup "tax maze" so that you can more effectively focus on growing your startup and be well positioned for long-term success.

    Helping you Solve the Rubik's Cube of Revenue Growth: Getting from $1M to $5M

    Ever try to solve a Rubik's cube? Most people can complete one side, but solving the whole puzzle is decidedly more difficult. Entrepreneurs experience the same thing when trying to solve the revenue growth puzzle. Achieving the first million is pretty straightforward, but growing revenues from $1M to $5M is complicated. You have to be thinking several steps ahead and managing several moving parts. Solving the revenue growth puzzle requires you to think of marketing, sales, staffing, training, financing, production and distribution. OEN has assembled a stellar panel of entrepreneurs who have successfully grown their companies’ revenues past the $5M mark and are willing to share their experiences, and answer your questions. Please join moderator Frank Helle, CEO of Axian, Inc. and Program Chair for OEN's CEO Roundtable, along with the following three revenue-growth experts for an informative and entertaining panel discussion. There will be plenty of interactive Q&A time regarding how to drive revenue growth from the $1M marker to the $5M marker.

    OEN Workshop - What if we're doing it all wrong? Predicting if your business will survive or fail

Pioneering this research, first at Intel and then at Harvard, Thomas Thurston has offered to share this fascinating work, the results, and the actionable implications for managers.
