Andrew Eisenberg will discuss some of the major legal topics that affect every business or startup. In particular, he will discuss issues related to the formation of a company, employment basics, intellectual property concerns, and legal topics related to raising capital. Andrew will discuss common pitfalls and basic dos and don’ts to prevent large issues down the road
Andrew believes that a business’s legal structure should reflect the long-term goal of the business. Drawing together practical experience as a startup founder, as well as extensive legal education and experience, Andrew has a holistic view when it comes to ensuring businesses are set up to succeed. He is passionate about start-ups; he has enjoyed the ups and downs of being intimately involved with launching them, and loves the challenges that inevitably pop up along the way.
Andrew is a partner with extensive experience in both corporate and intellectual property matters making him the prefect attorney to assist businesses in navigating the complex legal landscape associated with starting a business, developing strategic IP assets, raising capital, and planning for an exit. Andrew draws on wide-ranging expertise gained while working with businesses ranging from high tech start-ups to companies on the Fortune 500 list. He has a clear vision of how businesses small and large develop legal strategies to protect themselves and increase intrinsic value.
In the business world, it’s easy to fall victim to legal issues; Andrew doesn’t want people to make unnecessary (and avoidable) mistakes. Seeing businesses – particularly start-ups and small businesses – succeed is Andrew’s definition of job satisfaction. Why? Because he’s been in the business game himself and understands the thrills (and disappointments) that come with starting a new business and seeing the business fail. He has hands-on experience with startups; he’s walked in the shoes of an entrepreneur and understands the sacrifices, long nights, hard work – and legal aspects – of building a business from the ground up.
An attorney with an ability to think outside the box and go that extra mile for clients, Andrew is lawyer with a difference – rather than merely telling you where to step, he has experienced walking in your shoes.

Secure software update is is critical for IoT success. Devices will often need to operate for 10, 20 years, sometime in remote locations.
During this time, device vendor will need to add features, fix bugs, and provide remedies when a new vulnerability is discovered. For the device to remain secure, all this needs to happen for the whole life-time of the device.
Easing the development of IoT (key drivers in the way the key device enablers – Mbed OS, Mbed for X and Mbed stack are developed, the top stack is about the ease of IoT DevOps – these are the key things that allows enterprises to operate, deploy, connect and mange IoT
Efficiency – several OS exist with claims that they are suitable for IoT. Mbed OS is the only OS build from the ground up taking into account the power efficiency requirements of constrainted nodes for IoT
Security – the foundation of security in the IP – Trustzone and Trustzone-M, uvisor, hardware encryption, random number generation capability all offer a secure, robust foundation for IoT. In IoT there is a vast stack of software and communication layer protocols all the way into the cloud that needs protecting. Mbed offers a platform for this end to end trust model to be established.
Productivity – the tools and workflow of our enablers allowed developers to develop quickly
SPEAKER Bio: Austin Blackstone, ARM
Austin Blackstone is the developer evangelist for the Mbed platform. He enjoys building elegant solutions to complex problems, generally demystifying misconceptions and most importantly getting stuff done.
Come find out what the benefits and drawbacks to manufacturing and prototyping with additive technology. You may even be using this technology if you have used a desktop 3D printer for building your products prototype.
Learn the basic technologies in use today for producing plastic, ceramic, rubber, metal and even bio-metric parts. If you are an expert or a novice come share your knowledge or questions in an open discussion on this form of manufacturing.
Remember to come early to network with colleagues. Janet and David will present a number of critical lessons from multiple industries - finding the right balance of technology & price, avoiding design pitfalls, and best practices in manufacturing, operations, and supply chain. Examples will be drawn from their combined experience, each highlighting a key lesson and things to do / not to do for the aspiring hardware entrepreneur. As Janet says, "this is not hard, stop making it hard" - the presentation will help break down and simplify a lot of the daunting elements of conceptualizing, defining, designing, testing, and building complex hardware system.
David Jedynak Bio
David's experience in hardware, software, and systems engineering and technology leadership spans multiple industries: Film, Consumer Automotive, and Aerospace & Defense. In each, he was on the leading-edge of major transitions and modernization of the core technologies and business models - more the same than different. In film, he was on the forefront of the transition of century-old film to digital technologies in Los Angeles. In 2001, he joined start-up PhatNoise (later acquired by Harman) to bring embedded ARM / Linux playback of music in cars before iPods and iTunes. Currently he is the Chief Technology Officer for Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions, providing leadership across the rugged-deployed defense electronics industry in new and emerging technologies, and leads start-up style entrepreneurial projects in Curtiss-Wright's "Bicycle Shop" (in honor of where the Wright Brothers invented the airplane). David lives in Austin with his family and wife Janet.
Janet Jedynak's Bio
Janet has a wealth of experience and knowledge in the Aerospace & Defense industry, having worked in all aspects of the operations, manufacturing, program management, and supply chain of Los Angeles-based A&D hardware start-up Vista Controls through and post-acquisition by Curtiss-Wright. She's worked in multiple start-up level A&D companies, and even took time to flip a franchise restaurant for strong profit. She's a Lean Six-Sigma Black Belt. Her in-depth knowledge of not just what to build, but how to build it - starting with a napkin sketch - enabled her to build complex and cutting-edge embedded systems in use by the US Department of Defense platforms today, including the M1A2 Abrams Main Battle Tank, Stryker Mobile Gun System, and Global Hawk Unmanned Air System. Beyond defense hardware, she built-out complete engineering and manufacturing facilities, and built hardware for Space Shuttle. Janet lives in Austin with her family and husband David.
Vinit Singh, PhD will be speaking from experience, he will discuss the life of a startup from start to exit: some decisions that could improve outcomes, some steps that could make outcomes deceptively better (or worse) and some steps that can, with high probability, degrade outcomes.
His experience has been in a B2B hardware company but the general takeaways should be transferable to most hardware and software startups.
