Newsletter: 023 | Q1


We're officially through the first quarter of 2018.  It's a good time to reflect on the start of the year and to get re-energized for the rest of it.  Is there anything you didn't get around to in Q1 that you want to prioritize in Q2?  One thing on my list is intermittent fasting.

Where We'll Be This Week

Open Office Hours

Friday, April 6, 2018

Hub seventeen by luululemon
114 5th Avenue
(underground in lululemon's Flatiron store)

We're taking our laptops to lululemon's community space to work for a few hours and offer a chance to connect in an informal work setting.  Think of it as open office hours for you to come by and chat about law, startups, crypto, wellness, etc.  It'll also give you an excuse to buy some great workout gear.


You'll need to sign up online at the links provided for ticketed events.  Attendance is at your own cost and subject to limited availability.  No need to RSVP to us for any of these events, but let us know if you'd like to be kept in the loop on any last-minute scheduling changes.  Also, keep in mind that these events are not firm-hosted or sponsored events, so we have no control over availability, pricing or any other matters associated with these events.  Again, this is just our attempt at cultivating community by giving us all a chance to connect outside of the office.

About our Newsletter

We decided to launch a weekly newsletter with the simple goal of cultivating community.  Our newsletter covers (1) content relating to the startup industry that we liked from the previous week, giving you something to read, listen to, and watch; (2) content we created during the previous week, keeping you up to date on news and insight from our team; and (3) events and activities we plan to host or attend in the upcoming week, providing our community of clients, partners, and friends an opportunity to share, support, and connect with each other.
