Anytime a startup bootstraps a new business idea, they cut a few corners. And how can you blame them? After all, it’s pretty easy to build and promote a web app over the course of the weekend. Failing fast may be better than pouring resources into a project that could fail later down the line.
It’s no surprise many of the startups we hear from launched without consulting a lawyer. They haven’t filed for IP protection, and they’re not exactly thinking how they will file their taxes in the upcoming year.
