Ever wondered what it takes to be part of a startup and what it takes to get from idea to launch? This full-day, hands-on workshop allows students to experience the startup journey — by learning and applying the product skills necessary to build a startup. It will help participants become more entrepreneurially minded and ethically conscious in creating solutions, which will be beneficial in their future careers – be it as lawyers, engineers, business/finance roles, or even as future startup founders. In this workshop, you will develop a product, consider related ethical and sustainability issues, build a business case and pitch deck, and pitch to actively investing VCs as the finale.
The workshop is taught by Jay Mandal, a lawyer and product and design expert, and Jameson Dempsey, current Residential Fellow at CodeX. Jay is currently VP of Product Strategy at SAP Ariba and Stanford CodeX fellow; he previously served as CEO of a Google Ventures-funded startup and head M&A lawyer at Apple. Jameson has represented global technology companies, trade associations, and startups on tech policy issues before federal and state agencies and Congress, and serves as global director of Legal Hackers, the world’s largest grassroots legal innovation community.
