LegalZoom Stock: Investing in Small Business Growth

Everyone’s a wantrepreneur. They have some great idea in their head that they’ll tell you if you’ll promise not to tell anyone. These are the sort of folks who would ask a venture capital firm to sign a non-disclosure agreement (amateur hour move). Then there are those who take a few more steps. They design […]

DISCO Stock: Using Tech to Strengthen the Law

They say that a bad lawyer might let a case drag on for several years, but a good lawyer can make it last even longer. Nowhere is the threat of a lawsuit more liberally thrown around than in America, where the State of California actually keeps a list of people who sue too much – […]

A Review of Netcapital and a Look at GenesisAI

Some credit Churchill with saying “the fascists of the future will call themselves anti-fascists.” He didn’t actually say that, but it’s interesting to ponder in much the same way we’re being told that special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) are here to “democratize access to IPOs.” Whenever a firm says they’re democratizing access to wealth, they’re […]

Some Fintech Companies Aren’t Good For Investors

Tech media has become a political mess. Reporters think their mandate is to catch venture capitalists saying horrible words like “retard” (some now refer to it as “the r-slur“) so they can engage in public condemnation.
