In this episode I speak to Don Keller, CEO and founder at Joinder.
Don is a partner in the Silicon Valley office of Orrick, and a member of the Technology Companies Group. He advises high-growth technology companies, public companies, venture capital firms and investment banks.
He has advised clients on more than 60 public offerings, 75 acquisition transactions and several hundred venture financings.
In recent months, he’s been helping launch Joinder, which uses machine learning trained by hundreds of Orrick professionals to automatically organise a company’s records and files.
It is completely free for Orrick projects, with no limit on the number of users or workrooms, but is now being opened up to other companies and users.
As a lawyer, Don has worked on transactions for Google (Nasdaq GS: GOOG), Oracle (Nasdaq GS: ORCL), Tibco (Nasdaq GS: TIBX), Adaptec (Nasdaq GS: ADPT), Shutterfly (Nasdaq GS: SFLY), Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (NYSE:MSO), Sum Total Systems (Nasdaq GS: SUMT) and Rambus (Nasdaq GS: RMBS).
Hear what Don has to say on the joys of building a start-up company himself as he nears the end of his career in Silicon Valley having spent his working life advising those on the other side!
