Hacker La[w]

Legal issues arise constantly in the world of entrepreneurs and technologists. Each month, join members of the HackerLab community as we address a different intersection of law, business, and technology. 

Startups 101

This month, we will touch on the major legal issues that new founders should be focused on, including entity choice, formation, IP protection, and early funding concerns.

Class Structure

The class will begin with a 30-40 minute discussion of the chosen topic, followed by Q&A and open group discussion.

What will you get out of this class?

At the end of the class, students will have a better understanding the legal issues surrounding their current or next startup. Students will be able to prioritize their planning needs and legal services and will be better equipped to discuss and seek out those services.

    I missed the bus by less than a minute and I will be taking the next available route, but it will cause me to arrive ~10 minutes late.

    I was hoping to request permission from Ryan to record his presentation and his answers to the Q&A, but, as I will not be there in the beginning, could one of you fellow attendees request such permission and use a voice recorder on your phones? I would be very grateful if, after securing Ryan's permission and recording such, you could send me the recording.

      The bus I'd depended on for the backup route didn't show up, so I will be unable to attend afterall. If anyone did happen to make a recording, please email me it at brandon[at]zeroqualms[do­t]net

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
