About Brint Hiatt: I’ve been involved in startups and tech since before getting into law, in 2005, when I was writing pitch decks and business plans and making presentations to Angels and VCs for a startup video game developer and publisher. After law school I wore many hats at the various startups I worked in, just like any other entrepreneur, taking on responsibilities for operations, analytics, sales, marketing, and business development, finance, in addition to the legal duties I had. I opened my own firm in 2017 because I wanted to be able to make a deeper impact and build deeper relationships with entrepreneurs. That kind of energy feeds me. Besides video games, I have worked in various other industries both before, during, and after law school, such as operational business intelligence, government R&D, charity fundraising, solar, and a few others.
