To effectively represent technology companies and their constituents, lawyers must understand the industry climate in which their clients operate. Join us for the first in our series designed to educate legal counsel on the state of the technology industry in New York.
New York’s tech industry predates the personal computer, but has lagged behind Silicon Valley. Now, with companies like Second Market, Twitter, Etsy and FourSquare, the NY tech industry has been reinvigorated. A new day has dawned and, along with it, new deal structures. The days of multimillion-dollar pre-revenue fundings may be gone, but many companies ARE getting the attention of a wider range of venture capitalists and other funding sources.
Come get the latest insights on how venture capital is backing NY’s tech industry. Learn what deals are being done, what it takes to get funded, and how company lawyers can help pave the way from first interest to a closed deal.
