“enVerid is pleased that ASHRAE’s updated guidance takes into account the challenges of pursuing a maximum OA ventilation approach, particularly the substantial increase in energy expenditure it requires,” said Christian Weeks, CEO of enVerid Systems. “Running a building has become significantly more expensive as owners and tenants put in place myriad upgrades to address COVID-19. With this new guidance, ASHRAE offers an alternative HVAC strategy with similar efficacy that will not add substantial costs to a building’s already constrained operational budget.”

Hi! Made this throwaway because I don't want this traced to my actual life atm, particularly in the event that this crashes and burns.
I'm an attorney with a full-time day job and am interested in tinkering with the development of an app/system. I'd prefer not to divulge the details here, so nobody poaches my idea and beats me to it. For conflict-of-interest purposes, the premise has no relationship to my day job.
The perk of being an attorney would be that I can probably sort out all the legal aspects of developing an app/biz. This, plus the idea (which I believe has the potential to thrive further during current times) makes me think that the plan could be feasible.
The downside is that I have little-to-no idea of where to begin. I would assume, start with a market research study independently and figure out if this thing actually has potential? I listen to a healthy amount of How I Built This, and I noticed a lot of founders seem to have solid networks to begin with. I don't believe that I would. I don't know how app development or software development works, and I sure don't know how it would gain traction. I just have had this idea in my head for years, and it seems more relevant than ever in covid times and I'd like to take at least a stab at putting it out there. When running a basic search, it doesn't seem the idea is out there in concrete form yet.
Someone help a novice! Please! Any resources, books, podcasts, etc to help me wrap my head around how to proceed would be much appreciated. Thank you.
I’m working on brining a startup together with four other founders, but I lack any and all business and legal knowledge. While I have been educating myself, when it comes to the formailities, I am not sure if I know things correctly. The Canadian government’s resources are too high level. A checklist of things to do would be nice in my scenario. I do have a few questions that I have generated over time, but can’t find a proper answer to:
1) Shareholder vs Founder’s agreement; which to use? One or both?
2) Can an online agreement making service suffice for a shareholder’s agreement?
3) What other agreements should founders/directors sign?
Are there any sources or older posts in this sub that I could use to educate myself further on the technical requirements, procedures and options that a startup has? I’ve also found some guidance on how to operate an incorp. and conduct director meetings, but I haven’t found something reliably comprehensive.
Any and all guidance is much appreciated.
