Taking the Startup

If you have an entrepreneurial bone in your body, being a startup lawyer is a pretty great gig. You get to work with dozens and dozens of smart entrepreneurs, see cutting edge technologies before they are launched, and get to work in one of the most fast paced sectors of our economy. At the same time, being a startup lawyer is like getting a taste of the first course of a big meal, but never quite getting to dive into all 14 courses.

    Congratulations! Setting out on a new path is always fun. But, I’ve got to say on a personal note it’s a bummer. We’re just starting our path to funding and found you. I was really excited to have found a start-up lawyer who truly seemed to relate to the entrepreneurial spirit and now you’re leaving that role. Appature is lucky to have you.

    Eric,

    Congratulations on the move. There aren’t many better gigs than being a startup lawyer and it looks like you found one. It was great to finally meet you in Kansas City.

    Congratulations! Best of luck with Appature, you’re going to kill it over there! Thanks for the shout out and for all of the help you’ve given us over the last year and a half. You have been instrumental in taking Startup Weekend to the next level, I’m looking forward to what’s to come!

    Best,

    Clint
