Why We Support New York Tech Alliance:
We love New York. For many years Ted Sabety has supported the urbanization of the technology industry because as a young engineer, he preferred living and working in an urban environment—which until recently seemed to preclude an engineering career other than academia. It seems obvious now, but it wasn’t back then: it’s where young talent wants to live and work. So, NYC is our home and where we have watched amazing stories unfold, like that of our client, and NY Tech alumni, Shopkeep. We advised Shopkeep regarding IP and technology law issues from their earliest days through their noteworthy acquisition in 2020. We support the NY Tech Alliance community, because we want to contribute to the success of the vibrant NY Tech community.

In one workshop, Ted Sabety discusses what a startup should do early in its life to get on the right track. Early stage technology companies live and die on how they manage their IP. Startup companies that become valuable have managed their IP development well. Addressing these issues early and properly saves money and avoids legal crises. Ongoing IP asset portfolio development enhances the company’s prospects for financing and a lucrative exit.
