068: Partnership & Funding Legal Considerations for Product Startups

MAKO Design + Invent – May 10, 2021

With Brett Colvin, President of Goodlawyer

Brett is the President of Goodlawyer, a law firm tailored specifically to startups. Today Brett is going to share some valuable knowledge on business law considerations for when starting and scaling a hardware startup. There’s two main fields of law for a hardware startup, one, is the intellectual property protection, aka patent law, and the second is business legal issues, things such as partner agreements, Non-disclosures, financing agreements – Today, we’re talking about the latter, legal considerations of your product business itself. What legal considerations should you be making, but almost more importantly, what legal things should you not be spending big bucks on.
