  • The Basics of Startup Law with YESpdx

    NedSpace on 5th

    In the start-up world, legal issues are frequently identified but practical solutions are hard to come by. However, with a little bit of knowledge better decisions can be made early and there are more ways to succeed and fewer ways to fail.

    There are many “checklists” for startup legal but most importantly a company must identify:

    1) Ownership among founders / employees / investors

    2) Entity selection

    3) IP protection

    4) Employee / Independent Contractor relationships

    5) Tax planning

    6) What to do when things go wrong

    This month Leigh Gill of Immix Law will join YESpdx to present on the fundamentals of start-up law. Leigh started his career in finance and then spent a decade in software development before becoming an attorney. For more information on Leigh, visit www.immixlawgroup.com

    As usual, there will be beer and snacks! Event co-sponsored by NedSpace and the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network (OEN).

    Portland Riak "Luc Perkins & The Personal Cloud"

    NedSpace on 5th

    Is the siloed internet over? It's too early to tell, but personal cloud is showing tremendous promise as a counter-paradigm that holds the promise of both providing most or all of the services that we currently enjoy and doing so in a way that is vastly more consistent with more stringent understanding of privacy and consent. While there are numerous countries making slow progress on the personal cloud front, none, as far as I know, are considering Riak as a data store for personal clouds. In this talk, I'd like to make the case for Riak as being an ideal technology for this.

    Seating is limited.

    Colby Aley is a 16 year old web developer, High School student and entrepreneur. He enjoys working with early stage startups, going from nothing to launched product. After starting his first (failed) company not knowing how to code, Colby decided never again to do so without more solid programming skills. His influencers include Sam Soffes of Nothing Magical and Maciej Ceglowski of Pinboard.

    Jackson Gariety attended Grant High School 2009 to 2012, he started doing freelance web design in early 2009. His first clients were local businesses and slowly grew his abilities and network to pay for better design and development tools. In 2012 he started working with Brian Hendrickson to build a social web platform called HashTraffic which has been developed and is currently being sold. He also teaches a class on app development.

    Andrew Oesterreich is a 12 year old 7th grade entrepreneur who attends Wood Middle School in Wilsonville. He started out by doing odd jobs for his neighbors then moved on to giving younger students drum lessons. Last fall, he ventured in on a duct-tape wallet business with 2 friends. It wasn't long til half of the school had a shiny new duct tape wallet. He loves shark tank and is always looking for new businesses to create.

    The emcee for The Dog Ate My Startup and open QA event is the always funny, the sometimes sober, and the ever flatulent John Friess, founder and CEO of Journey Gym.

    Doors open at 5:00pm for networking

    Event starts at 5:30pm and goes until 6:30pm or 6:45pm, it's up to John, let's hope he's lucid.

    Startup 001: Your first experiment

    NedSpace on 5th

    Only 20 spots so sign up today!

    Someone get the Fabreeze, because your idea STINKS!

    A softer way of putting that is your idea has a hole in it somewhere. You should identify the holes in the boat before launching your transatlantic journey.

    Forget your solution and run your first experiment by talking to customers and validating that they have the problem you think they have.

    Learn the importance of Customer Development and why talking to customers is step one for any new idea, product, or service. After a brief intro to Lean and my personal story, we will set up your first problem/customer statement and conduct your first experiment using the Validation Board. Part of this class will be "out of the building" as we do in our Lean workshops.

    We will cover the following in the this session. - Brief into to Lean and why it is valuable - Complete run-through of Validation Board (as this will be the basis of all experiments) - How to turn assumptions into experiments - Types of minimal viable products to build - What features do my customers want (setting up experiments for team) - Customer development tactics and exercises to implement - Case study of real life implementation and business model


    About Adam Berk Entrepreneurial Science, Lean Startup Machine

    I am the Global Director of Entrepreneurial Science at Lean Startup Machine. I have the great pleasure of travelling around the world to teach entrepreneurs about Lean methodologies. I have helped over 100 teams of entrepreneurs in Istanbul, Silicon Valley, NYC, Seattle, Vancouver, Montreal, and at The University of Florida, Microsoft, AOL, NewsInternational, etc.

    Standing on the shoulders of giants like Eric Ries, Steve Blank, Patrick Vlaskovits and others, we have distilled the Lean methodology into actionable, sequential steps. I really enjoy teaching early stage companies how to identify their riskiest assumptions and test them using our own proprietary tool, the Validation Board. I wish I could have taken this class when I built my first startup, neighborrow.com and I used the methods I teach in my current app for wedding photos - where I validated the solution and had paying customers before I wrote a line of code.
