About Me

José Ancer

UT Austin B.A., Harvard J.D.  I’m a tech & vc-focused corporate Partner in the Startup and Emerging Technology Group of E/N, where I represent market leading emerging companies across a variety of tech and CPG industries and in multiple cities – my kind of people.

The purpose of this blog is to provide founders a curated resource for educating themselves on core startup law & finance concepts, without wasting money or equity on lawyers or advisors; particularly founders outside of Silicon Valley, which I believe plays by its own unique rules.  And acting as my firm’s CTO and a Managing Partner of its Tech/VC practice, I’ve put together a technology-based infrastructure within E/N to ensure clients receive a “user experience” unlike any other law firm; delivering leading-edge efficiency, without compromising on flexibility.  I write about startup law practice 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 an independent law firm that combines (i) A-level lawyers, (ii) cutting edge technology, and (iii) a flexible ecosystem of focused boutiques and solo lawyers to replace large, traditional law firms with a new vision for “full service” legal counsel. We’re showing the market how right-sized, top-tier law firms can, just like top startups, out-compete firms 100x their size.
