What we're about
New York is at the hub of the next wave of startups and venture funding. While many meetup groups showcase particular startup projects or focus on narrow issues, this group is intended to explore at a higher level the full range of business and legal issues that confront startup companies. These include founder relationships, intellectual property matters, funder expectations, marketing, and developing a user base. This group will help make your startup stronger from the very beginning. Meetups will generally be held every other Monday. Panelists will be drawn from successful and well-known New York startups and venture capital funds, as well as highly experienced lawyers from the national law firm Foley & Lardner. These panelists will share the lessons they have learned from their experiences in the New York startup scene, both in the presentations and in the informal networking before and after each event.
