Looking to get involved in a startup. Would an MD degree help?

Hi everyone. I'll cut to the chase. I am a first-year med student but realized my passion is in entrepreneurship and startups. Would finishing my medical degree help me in my startup endeavors, perhaps in the health tech field? Or should I just drop out. I don't plan on practicing.

Best way to get involved in a startup that is in the early phase of formation? More inside.

I work full-time as a software engineer for a company that I'm very happy with. I'd like to join a startup that is essentially in the extremely early phase of formation, so it could allow me to keep my full-time job, while contributing to the startup on weekends or nights. If the startup ends up getting traction, I'd be happy to join full time.

I guess what I'm after is an opportunity that would allow me to come in as one of the startup's core members, that would have me wearing many hats (technical & entrepreneurial). My dream would be to be one of the reasons a company was able to hit the ground running & be successful.

So I guess my question is what's the best way to go about networking to find these startups that are more or less in the concept phase? I don't want something that's a 9-5 (because I have that already). I want something that's someone's side project that I can contribute to in hopes of forming it into a living, breathing product.

Thanks!

I want to build a very small niche SAAS product on my own and sell it through a subscription model. Do you have any advice on what software I could use to sell and manage the subscriptions, and how much effort and overhead will be involved in selling products this way?

I am a software developer who wants to build an own product besides my job. I intend (as described in the title) to sell this product through a Subscribed Model. Unfortunately I have no idea what kind of legal, administrative and long term support effort this will involve. Is it even possible to do this on my own? Besides, I don't have a lot of starting capital and I don't expect my product to have huge sales. I just want to create a useful product which maybe will get my some passive income.

Do you have any experience in setting up SAAS products? Are there perhaps similar simpler models for selling small products?

What are the logistics involved (operation, tax, etc.) of having an software service company and operating in states other than the one you are filed in?

I’m in the process of getting setup for an app and currently live in Texas. I want to file my business in the cheapest tax state to file, Texas, or New York (where I also live). This has me thinking though, if I am operating an app nationwide, do I have to file for a business license in every state which the app is live?

And more so, how do Texas and New York fare as far as licensing, taxes, etc.,? I know different states (Nevada, Delaware) have policies that are much more lenient and favorable to small businesses, but how do New York and Texas fare?

Also, the lawyer I’ve talked to quoted my at $ 2k to accomplish everything pertaining to filing and business license acquisition; is this a fair price?

Startups involved in online gambling

Hello everyone. I'm new here. I was looking towards virtual entertainment ever since lockdowns were imposed and I think I found the right source. What would you guys think of an online decentralized casino that is 100% player owned and offers a variety of games like blackjack,dice,etc. That casino is EarnBet. The question that I would like to address to those reading is that do you think if the success of online gambling is long lasting, will traditional casinos be a thing of the past?

High school students: a platform to get involved with entrepreneurship and business

Hey everyone,

I'm a high schooler myself and I've been working on a platform for the last few months that enables high school students to get involved with business and entrepreneurship; think "LinkedIn for high schoolers." Along with being a social network, one of the central features is that you can pitch business ideas to each other and collaborate to bring them to life.

I'd like to get input from the community on what features would you look for in a platform like this/what would make you want to use it. I've got most of it built already been I want to make it perfect for the needs of the people who will be using it.

Also, I'm doing a soft launch starting really soon, so if you're interested in getting access to the platform, let me know below and I'll send you the link. Looking to get a good handful of early access users so I'd really appreciate it.

Would love other feedback and advice as well!

Is maintaining a minute book needed if I’m the only one involved in a C Corp?

I'm launching a C Corp registered in Delaware. As of now, I am the only person running it with no one else on the board. This could be the case for the next year or two. I currently don't have a lawyer and am going through a third party company to register the business.

Do I need to worry about things like maintaining a minute book since I'm the only one involved in the company now?

How important is it to apply for trademarks? What if an individual applies for the trademark, can it be later used by the company (which as of now is not registered because we aren’t sure I’m which country we should register the company) What are the complications and risks involved.

We are two student Cofounders and currently not well informed about the legality of these requirements. We are entirely bootstrapping using the money we are earning through side hustles such as internships and freelance. Any help will be wonderful. Thankyou:)
