Engaging a business consultant to advance a startup plan for LawAtlas as a for-profit corporate entity

The Foundation's program, Public Health Law Research: Making the Case for Laws That Improve Health, was designed to build the evidence for public health law and policy, translate research findings into practical tools to increase the support for and use of law by policy makers and public health practitioners, and to translate findings to other fields and venues to improve and protect health.This grant will allow the Public Health Law Research National Program Office (NPO) to engage a business consultant to assist it with developing a business plan and helping to identify options for creating an organizational entity to support LawAtlas, the Web portal that the NPO has created for policy and law surveillance. This support will help the NPO refine and implement a startup plan and provide advice about the best corporate structures, intellectual property rights, business planning, business development, and organizational development and planning. Deliverables will include the business plan and recommendations about potential clients, and the roles, responsibilities, and structure for the new entity to be created to support LawAtlas.
