Startup Journey--From Starting Out to Exit, in the Co-Founder's Own Words
It has been a while since I blogged, my sincere apologies as it has been a very busy summer and fall at CyberlawStudio. However, recently I came across an article which I would like to share with my readers. For a startup and business lawyer who has read many articles and advised many clients on the topic , I find this article to be one of the most comprehensive article on the subject of startups. The article, "Lanyrd: from idea to exit--the story of our startup," was written by Natalie Downe, the co-founder and CPO of Lanyrd.com, a social conference directory platform which was eventually acquired by Eventbrite. In the article, the author talked about the history of her company, the experience of going through an incubator program, how to pitch to investors (and pick them), tips on hiring, interactions with the press, and the eventual acquisition. In the event that you work at a startup, or are interested in starting a company, this article will be very helpful. You can read the article by clicking here.
