Fun Happenings


Several really good pieces of reading today on the web about startup law and how it might change for the better.

First, Eric Koester writes a great piece for Xconomy about his testimony before Congress. Eric nails it with his recommendations. Eric did a great job representing us in D.C.

And then, in the Huffington Post, there is a really good article titled, My Attorney Just Shattered My Crowdfunding Dreams.

Finally, Bill Carleton has written another great blog post–Startup Investing: Public Park vs. Gated Community.

The upshot of all of these articles? Hopefully a growing awareness that the law is slowing the startup and entrepreneurial community down, or at least at some level making life more difficult than ought it be.

Startups create jobs, and we ought not slow that down without a really good reason. There are numerous ways we can make life better for startups and entrepreneurs today that would only require minor modifications in the law.

Please see full article below for more information.
