Spring into Summer!

There’s a lot going on in the Chicago and Colorado technology communities! Get out and about and check out what we’re up to below!

Leveraging Everything, Making it Happen & Boulder Startup Week!

In the spirit of leveraging everything, I’m excited to announce that Meyer Law has been officially certified by WBENC as a Women’s Business Enterprise and Women-Owned Small Business! I also had the opportunity to talk with TODAY’s parenting team, where I provided tips on launching a startup and working full time (a.k.a making it happen!). Lastly, I had a blast in Boulder last week speaking twice at Boulder Startup Week on Bootstrapping 101 and Investment Agreements-Protecting your Interests. Summer is around the corner and there’s a lot going on, so I hope to see you around!

– Tricia Meyer, Founder + Managing Attorney, Meyer Law
