In the second of a new video series (“180”), CED President Joan Siefert Rose talks about why startups need legal representation, especially when raising funding (such as crowdfunding), with WRAL TechWire Editor Rick Smith.

The “180” series is designed to bring in-depth interviews to WTW readers in a short format – 3 minutes or less.

We’ll have more videos from Joan later.

A link to an earlier video is included with this post.
