About Me


José Ancer

UT Austin B.A., Harvard J.D.  I’m a corporate, technology, and venture capital attorney in the Startup and Emerging Technology Group of MEMN‘s Austin office, where I represent leading early-stage companies and entrepreneurs across a variety of tech-focused industries – my kind of people.

As a technologist who practices law, my goal is to be a source of insight for founders on business, finance, and even product strategy.  The purpose of this blog, particularly the Learn the Essentials section, is to provide Texas-based founders a curated resource for educating themselves on core startup law & finance concepts, without wasting money or equity on lawyers or advisors.

And acting as my firm’s Chief Technology Officer, I follow the latest tools that ensure MEMN’s clients receive a “user experience” unlike any other law firm.  I write about legal technology frequently on this blog.

Experienced early-stage corporate and venture capital lawyers are an essential part of any startup ecosystem.  I consider myself incredibly lucky to be part of a law firm that combines the experience and breadth of a top-tier traditional firm, with the flexibility and efficiency of a boutique firm.  Liberating phenomenal lawyers from bureaucratic, bloated institutions is the icing on the cake.
