William Carleton

Practice/Organization Description

Drawing on experience that spans the history of the Internet, I counsel entrepreneurs, technologists, investors, board directors and executives who found, nurture and monetize growing companies.

My day to day practice encompasses the following kinds of subjects:

* Venture planning

* Entity formation

* Financings

* 21st Century board and corporate governance processes

* Executive employment

* Software, media and IP licensing

* Channel and distribution arrangements

* Architecting Web 2.0 and tomorrow's business models.

I love language and writing. Recently, I've found a blogging "voice" and publish at wac6.com.
