Startup Presentation to ODU Entrepreneurship Center

A college campus exudes opportunity, possibility, and energy to me, so I always look forward to a chance to be on campus.

Last week, the Strome Entrepreneurial Center at Old Dominion University invited me to speak about my new book at its Lunch and Learn program. We had an enthusiastic audience of students, faculty members, staff, and community members. I talked about five concerns startup gig economy businesses have: (1) Protecting personal assets, (2) Protecting and retaining your "toolkit," (3) Transferring ownership of work product, (4) Getting paid, and (5) Resolving client disputes. Questions from the audience focused on the practical value of protecting intellectual property when investigation and enforcement cost so much money, effort, and time, and the pros and cons of starting an LLC or corporation in another state, like Delaware.

If you want to learn more about SEC and what they offer to not only the campus, but also the surrounding community, check out their website here: It contains a calendar of upcoming events and a description of resources.
