Founder’s Corner

we’ll help guide you down the right path

We love helping entrepreneurs and technology companies. It’s that simple. Each year, we mentor hundreds of companies, host 30+ workshops and meet with 100+ companies during office hours, and we’re a longtime supporter and sponsor of Startup Weekend. Check out the resources below to help you launch and scale your startup.


You don’t know where to start? No problem! Request a roadmap so that we can learn more about your business. We’ll explain what you need, why you need it and when you need it so that you can ensure the legal aspects of your business are in order.


As a startup, we understand the need for speed and transparency. Purchase packages online for your startup on your time to help ensure you’re starting your business on a firm legal foundation.


If you’re scaling your company, it’s important to make sure that everything is in line from a legal standpoint. We offer various fixed-fee assessments to help you make sure that you’re best protecting your business as you scale and grow.


We offer complimentary office hours to three lucky businesses each month!  Sign up for a call with one of our lawyers to talk about your business for 30 minutes and we’ll prepare a roadmap explaining what you need and recommend next steps.


We host monthly webinars on key founder topics such as founder’s agreements, fundraising, contracts, protection of intellectual property and hiring.

Our next webinar, Set it up Right: Choosing the Right Entity is on February 7th at 10:00am (CST).
