Pinsky Law New Venture Development Scholarship 2024 2025 is dedicated to supporting and offering services to entrepreneurs and startup companies. 

To assist those facing the challenges of establishing and operating a new venture, we’ve created and maintained a legal resources section specifically for startups on our website. We understand the financial commitment required for such endeavours, with many founders resorting to personal sacrifices like mortgaging homes or utilizing retirement savings and credit cards. While these funding sources are crucial, they come at a significant emotional and financial cost.
