Foley Hoag Teams with LevelUp to Offer Startups the Deal of a Lifetime

Legal session with Foley Hoag, accounting consultation, and lunch with a top VC are all part of "LevelUp Your Startup"

April 5, 2011

Foley Hoag is proud to be part of a new program announced today by LevelUp called “LevelUp Your Startup.”

An exciting new pilot launched by Foley Hoag client SCVNGR, LevelUp combines location-based gaming mechanics with daily deals, creating a powerful new model for building customer loyalty. Most of the time, LevelUp focuses on building amazing experiences at local businesses – offering customers the opportunities to LevelUp Your Burrito, LevelUp Your Rock Climbing, or even LevelUp Your Fitness. But today, for the first time ever, you can LevelUp Your Startup.

As part of Level 1 of the “LevelUp Your Startup” program, Foley Hoag business attorneys will meet with entrepreneurs to help get their companies incorporated and well on their way to bigger and better things. Entrepreneurs who buy Level 1 will unlock Level 2, which includes a startup accounting package from accountants Raphael & Raphael in Boston or ParenteBeard in Philadelphia. Buying Level 2 unlocks Level 3, where top-notch VCs and investors like Rich Miner from Google Ventures, Alex Taussig from Highland Capital Partners and folks from Robin Hood Ventures, Common Angels and Dreamit Ventures will take the entrepreneurs out to lunch and hear their pitch.

Proceeds from “LevelUp Your Startup” benefit two very deserving organizations: MassChallenge in Boston and Startup Corps in Philadelphia.

“Foley Hoag is thrilled to be part of LevelUp Your Startup,” said Paul Sweeney, a partner at Foley Hoag. “We’re deeply committed to helping entrepreneurs and their companies realize their success with meaningful advice, and LevelUp is a great way for us to help them get started.”
