Dinse is a StartUpVT Champion, doing our part to create a strong healthy ecosystem for entrepreneurs and start-up businesses in Vermont. If the concept of an "ecosystem" for start-ups is new to you, check out the Start Up America Partnership and the Vermont chapter, StartUpVT. And consider the book Startup Communities: Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City by Brad Feld (2012).

So to contribute to the Vermont business ecosystem, new in 2014 we are offering free Dinse Drop-in “office hours” for the StartUpVT community. Meet with a Dinse business lawyer for no charge during the designated hours. Ask legal questions for your business that are on your mind or, if you don’t have specific questions, learn what legal questions you should be thinking about for your business. Initial Dinse Drop-in sessions:

Thursday, January 30, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Thursday, February 13, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Thursday, February 27, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

**Thursday, March 13, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM** Consultations by phone on March 13; email Leigh Cole with your phone number and a good time to reach you, and you'll hear from us.  lcole@dinse.com

Come to our offices** at 209 Battery Street in Burlington during the designated Dinse Drop-in office hours** and ask to see one of our business lawyers who is available for drop-in consultations that day.   Future dates and times will be determined based on demand.
