Law to Tech Breakfast Panel
Friday, February 22, 2013 from 8:30 am - 10 am
Ready to leave the law for good? Do you have a desire to start your own company or work for a technology company in a non-legal capacity? Join us for an informal panel featuring lawyers who have successfully made the leap into the startup world! Panelists will discuss how they came up with their business ideas and how they were able to finally walk away from the stable pay check in favor of a life of ups and downs as a founder or team member of a startup!
Bagels and coffee will be served!
This panel will be moderated by Vinay Jain, Legal Counsel/ Business Development at Flavorpill.
