Silicon Valley attorney Roger Royse, partner at the law firm of Haynes and Boone LLP, will deliver his popular presentation:

“Top Ten Legal Mistakes that Could Kill Your Startup", which is based on his popular book,

Dead on Arrival: Avoiding the Legal Mistakes That Could Kill Your Startup

https://www.amazon.com/Dead-Arrival-Avoid-Mistakes-Start-Up/dp/1457509806

All Eventbrite registrants will receive a FREE soft copy of this classic book by Roger.

The presentation will summarize the most common legal mistakes that startup companies and their lawyers make and how to avoid making those mistakes. Some of those mistakes can be rectified, but many will result in your startup company being "dead on arrival" when it comes time for funding or acquisition opportunities. Knowing what those mistakes are and how to avoid them is essential to starting and building a successful company.

Roger will cover corporate, securities, tax, employment and technology law and more!

Please come with your questions, comments and scenarios.

FREE WEBINAR: How to Outsource Development of Your App

Online event

This event is organized by TechSpeak.

Our meetup group is collaborating by promoting this event.

This event is FREE to attend!

In order to attend, please register here:

https://www.techspeakforentrepreneurs.com/outsource/?utm=ideatoipo

(Registrants will receive login info right before the start of the event.)

If you are a non-technical person with an idea for an app, you’re probably looking for a technical co-founder to help you build the app.

However, you can launch a tech startup by outsourcing code!

In the early days of your startup it can be challenging to attract a technical co-founder to build your app. But by knowing how to efficiently outsource the building of your MVP and gain some traction, you can de-risk the opportunity for the tech person and change the conversation from "I Need You" to "Here's an Opportunity".

In this webinar, the speaker will discuss the best way to outsource the development of your app, including:

1) Why outsourcing may be the best way to find a technical co-founder

2) Outsourcing best practices

3) How not get ripped off in the process

and more!
