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 across the U.S. – 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; and importantly, without the biased advice that is often given by the investor community.  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.

The startup ecosystem has become saturated with law firms that have either overshot the needs of most startups with over-priced infrastructure, or become beholden to influential investor players who compromise their counsel. We’re building the market-leading emerging companies boutique law firm that (i) cuts out the unneeded fat (overhead) while retaining muscle (top-tier legal talent), and (ii) avoids pervasive conflicts of interest with tech VCs, so first-time founders can trust our advisory.
