Show #53 Ben Hatten, Legal River, changes the game for Startups.

The Startup Success Podcast

The Startup Success Podcast

Bob and Pat talk with Ben Hatten, co-founder of Legal River, a startup creating a marketplace where attorneys bid for your startup’s business. Proper lawyering, like proper plumbing, makes sure bad stuff doesn’t flood your startup. But finding the right attorney who understands IT and startup issues is hard outside of Silicon Valley and impossibly expensive if you deal with a large Silicon Valley law firm. Legal River turns this situation on its head and in your favor.

Also this week we have our first listener comment – Corey Maass founder of DubFiler shares a good tip with all of us. Why not call in your feedback and get your startup mentioned here? Call our Listener Hotline at 206-202-6473. (Tell us if it’s okay to play your comment.)

Show #42: Rob Walling and Mike Taber, the Micropreneur Academy

The Startup Success Podcast

The Startup Success Podcast

This week Bob and Pat talk with Rob Walling and Mike Taber, founders of the Micropreneur Academy, an online training program for people who want to become microISVs. Rob and Mike are software entrepreneurial veterans and have designed a powerful online learning environment that delivers real value at a very reasonable price.

(Bob’s Disclaimer: While some may think my StartupToDo.com and Rob’s Micropreneur Academy are competitors who should be biting and clawing at each other for your money, neither of us see it that way. If you’re serious about building a software business you should buy both! :) )

Pat talks about something startups may have missed in the hoopla over System 7, namely Beta 2 of Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework 4, and Bob talks about a third new resource for startups – with a precautionary warning.
