On March 11, 2019, it was announced in Lawyers Weekly that Rostron Carlyle Rojas Lawyers are proud supporters of UQ start-ups involved in the Universities new accelerator program.
UQ’s ilab pushed out a progressive start-up program called ‘Germinate Plus,’ to empower up-and-coming entrepreneurs. As part of the program, the up-and-comers are backed by expert legal services, which they only have to repay when they reach $500,000 in investment.
At the forefront of RCR Lawyers’ involvement is Founding Partner Gregory Rostron, who is excited about the firm’s alignment with such a positive initiative. He and the firm as a whole are very aware of the challenges faced by entrepreneurs, with many founders making simple mistakes due to a lack of investment available for legal advice.
“[The initiative] gives our local talent the confidence of a solid legal footing as they launch their businesses into the Australian market and beyond,” Mr. Rostron said.
“We see working with startups at this early stage as an opportunity to create a bond that will grow as the business matures.”
