Longtime tech founder and funder Mitch Kapor on Wednesday joined the chorus of startup experts who oppose fundraising rule changes proposed by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

“Practices that have worked well without incident for decades could suddenly become unintentional minefields for honest startups and sophisticated investors alike,” said the man who founded Lotus and co-founded the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Mozilla Foundation.

Kapor has made more than 200 seed and early stage investments over a 28-year career and is now managing partner of Kapor Capital, which makes 20 to 25 new investments each year.

Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]

    (JCW is responsible for retitling this press release)(JCW also feels that this is a great reason to surrender your CJA membership and join the ACJ and no, we’re not judges or affiliated with the ACJ in any manner) October 25, 2016 Last May, the California Judges Association crowed that it had been given “a seat […]
