Did you know that Elon Musk is not a founder of Tesla? That honor belongs to Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning, longtime clients of our guest, attorney Mark Cameron White.
White shares stories and wisdom from decades of practicing law in Silicon Valley and around the world. He talks about the importance of building a collective dream for a startup, how battle scars can cause bitterness or strength, and the way most entrepreneurs build wealth in Silicon Valley. He also offers his opinions regarding the three currencies of Silicon Valley, the right amount of time to take off after a liquidity event, and why true entrepreneurs are happiest laying the foundation of their company.
We discuss the delicate balance between funding your company and supporting your family, and Joyce shares tips for protecting your assets and avoiding financial surprises when starting a company.
