Concept Note :-
As we all know that start-up has become synonymous with country’s growth. Various Government policies and schemes launched by Indian Government to boost the start-ups in the countries. Many incubators and accelerators have been set up by the government and private players to support and nurture start-ups at various stages. Different important aspects are required to be nurtured and taken care of for sustained growth of start-ups. Out of these. Among many, Legal Aspects play a crucial role in the life cycle of a start-up. In most of the cases, start-up founders are not well versed with legal aspects related to start-up because of their non-legal background and because of that they land up into various difficulties.
