Legal Checklist for Start-Ups

Legal Checklist for Start-Ups

It is really important that you put a checklist in place and that you’re committed to doing things properly and seriously. It’s a sad fact that just over 50% of small businesses fail within the first four years and having a good understanding of what you want your business to achieve and how you’re going to achieve it can only be the right step in beating that statistic. It is absolutely true that investors, banks and business connections will look at the way you’re doing things, the contracts and policies you have in place and the overall running of your business before they commit to you so make sure you’re doing things right.

PHP Meet Up - End of Year Social
Dec

PHP Meet Up - End of Year Social

Is that sleigh bells we hear? Looking out the window it seems to be the PHPSW social sleigh being pulled along by some elephpants!
In a PHPSW tradition, we're wrapping up the year of 14(!) meetups with a social rather than a normal evening of talks.
Superdry are kindly helping us host this evening, helping to provide the venue, food & drinks. Thanks to them!
We have no talks this month, instead, take this opportunity to catch up with people you have met over the year, or meet someone new!

We'll be providing a few games & activities for the evening, plus there will be a prize draw where we have some elephpants, an echo mini, a JetBrains/PhpStorm license and a selection of other prizes available to win.
This year, we'll be hosting the social at DeskLodge and then moving on to the Volunteer Tavern afterwards.
--
You might wonder why Superdry are sponsoring our Christmas meetup. You will probably know them from their high street and online clothes shops, you might think of Superdry as somewhere to buy a hoodie or a pair of jeans. But what you might not know is that they are a big tech employer based within commutable distance of Bristol. At their global headquarters in Cheltenham they employ a sizeable in-house dev team who design and manage all of their ecommerce websites, such as this one www.superdry.com. They are investing a lot of money in digital tech and are expanding their team, and because their websites are built using PHP, they are interested in recruiting people like you. A few of their guys will be at the meetup if you fancy a chat about what it’s like to work as a developer for this big global brand – there will be no hard sell, but if you’re curious, they’ll be keen to talk to you.
--
As always, a big thanks to our meetup sponsors Ents24 (http://www.ents24.com/), Brightpearl (http://www.brightpearl.com/), Space 48 (https://www.space48.com/), Deep Blue Sky (http://deepbluesky.com/) & Helastel (https://www.helastel.com/) without whom we wouldn't be able to put on our meetups.

Brand Protection Workshop

Brand Protection Workshop

As entrepreneurs we understand that establishing your brand is time-consuming, costly and a crucial part of starting your business; one which could make or break your success. The recent developments in social media, the internet, smart phone devices and advert-funded business models mean that we are constantly absorbing marketing campaigns and advertising materials without even realising it. Brand awareness is a crucial part of any successful business and in a consumer led market, where new and improved products appear on an almost daily basis, customers look to the brands they trust to tell them whether to buy the latest trend. So, when starting out, what should you be thinking about when it comes to brand protection? Are you making the most of the law when protecting your company identity?
