September 16, 2014

Terri Krivosha, partner in Maslon's Business & Securities group, was interviewed in a September 14, 2014, St. Paul Pioneer Press article titled "Attorney's book breaks down business plan from end to start." In the interview, Terri discusses her new book, Founding a Startup: What You Need to Know, a comprehensive roadmap for anyone planning to start a business or in the early stages of founding a business.

Along with speaking to the Minnesota Cup Competition and Twin Cities Startup Week, networking and the importance of relationships is a common theme referenced throughout the interview. Terri asserts, "Businesses succeed because of the teams they form, not necessarily because of the ideas, because ideas change… it is more often than not that the team is what helps a business succeed."
