Many entrepreneurs can't afford to pay $200-300 per hour for legal help, especially with simple things like incorporating and simple contracts. There are many online libraries of legal docs, including some that exist and generate revenue because of Google AdSense. Today I found a consulting agreement on www.lectlaw.com and used part of it for a new contract. Lectlaw.com has 40,000 pages indexed by Google. If you run this query:
site:lectlaw.com consultingit returns an okay consulting contract.
We are making serious progress with our FundingUniverse.com business. Soon we'll announce some new capital, new leadership, and some significant partnerships that will help this company move forward. I love how the internet can create so much visibility for a new business idea. What used to take years in business formation now takes months. If you know any angel investors or VCs, please encourage them to signup for FundingUniverse.com (it's free) and look at some of the 543 business plans that have been posted there in the last few months. I'll be on a panel at the National Association of Seed and Venture Capital conference in Philadelphia next week, primarily to demonstrate the new DealFlow Suite (TM) which we make available to organized angel investor groups around the country.
