Jan 27th: Founder News, Events & Asks
It's that time again 😁, and well I have learnt my lesson. No more sending emails over holiday weekends, and not at the end of the day either!
Across our socials, we 💬 discussed everything from:
Legal aspects around working whilst building - Who owns the IP? How can you protect yourself? What due diligence should you do before accepting a new job offer?
Are pitch prep consultants a thing? Consider speaking with your advisors, specialists and past founders.
And with that, I'll bit you adieu for now.
