Catapult Chicago and founding sponsor Foley & Lardner are setting the gold standard in Chicago for how law firms and service providers can build relationships with growing tech startups. Check out the ABA Journal article: Law firms are Sponsoring Incubators, Cozying Up with Young Entrepreneurs.
Galen Mason (Foley special counsel and Catapult co-founder) along with several Catapult startup founders talk about this special, mutually beneficial relationship. Catapult companies have access to much needed legal expertise and guidance, while Foley gets in on the ground floor with high potential, high growth tech startups.
As Mason is quoted in the article: "I'm really interested in seeing their business go crazy. If you think about it, they would be a great client. They're raising capital; they're doing well. All of a sudden, you've empowered a small firm with big legal talent."
