Negotiating lease terms that meet the needs of your startup co-op is one of the most important things you will do for your co-op's future and how well you do it will impact the success of your co-op for years to come. And yet, most of us are not experienced commercial lease negotiators, so how do we make sure we do it right? Bill Gessner of CDS Consulting has coached many startups through this critical task and in this workshop will walk you through the most important issues of lease negotiation for startups. He will cover how to plan and prepare for lease negotiations; what the most critical issues are in negotiating a lease for your co-op's preferred site; guidelines for effective negotiating, and how to assemble a team to plan and carry through the negotiations.
