What Is a Search Fund?
A search fund is an investment vehicle, created in 1984, to help connect investors with entrepreneurs and manage a newly created company. The funds are usually set up by one or two entrepreneurs who raise investment funds from different venture capitalists to find suitable investment opportunities. The creation of a search fund is generally accredited to Professor H. Irving Grousbeck from Stanford Graduate School, who created the model to help two students who were looking to raise funds for buying a business.
A search fund makes it possible for entrepreneurs to connect with investors and raise equity investments. There are different stages of the development of the search fund, such as:
- Raising the initial capital
- Finding an acquisition deal of companies valued between $5 million and $30 million

What Is a Non Solicitation Agreement?
A non solicitation agreement is a common contract clause that says if you work for a competitor, you won't solicit any business clients, bring over any employees, or use any confidential information connected to your current job. In other words, you can't use your old company contacts to help your new company.
For example, imagine you're a high-ranking salesperson for a company that sells copper wire. Because of your job, you've spoken with copper wire buyers all across the globe. One day, a different copper wire seller offers you a better job and you accept. If your employment contract with your first job has a non solicitation agreement, you can't go to the copper wire buyers and ask them to switch suppliers because you've switched employers. The same applies if you go into business

There are no set rules to what angels can do for an entrepreneur and what they can expect in return. That's why angels are sought after with such intensity and why you must be especially vigilant in reviewing their offers.

Angel investors are typically wealthy individuals or fellow entrepreneurs — rarely professional venture capitalists — who are willing to do whatever it takes to get a startup off the ground, which usually means money.

What Is Cybersquatting?
Cybersquatting examples show Cybersquatting (a.k.a. domain squatting) is the act of registering, trafficking in or using a domain name in bad faith. Cybersquatters neglect the existence of a trademark to profit from others. In fact, domain names are cheap and are sold on a "first come, first served" basis.
As the internet started becoming popular, internet users knew businesses would need a website. Some users started buying domains to create sites that looked like they were from reputable companies.
Example: A cybersquatter could buy Heinz.com if the company hadn't created a website yet, looking to sell the domain to Heinz at a later date for profit, or use the domain name to attract traffic and generate money through advertising.
If a business has a good reputation but no website, the company either pays the owner of the domain name to transfer the domai

LLCs and Corporations: What are They?
Corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs) are two legal entity structures available in the U.S. If you're involved in a startup, these are two of the entity structures you can choose from. They operate differently and are taxed differently, but both provide protection for your personal assets if the company faces financial difficulty and both can add increased credibility with customers.
Other company entity options include forming as a partnership or a sole proprietorship, but these entities lack many of the benefits provided by LLC’s and corporations, including personal liability protection. To understand which of these entity structures is right for your startup, you need a basic understanding of each, and you need to consider what the future may hold for the business.
