    S1. E8. The Silicon Dreams - Hinglish Joe Jasin, Managing Director of Silicon Valley based Seed Investment firm DNA Partners talks to RJ Shara about Tech, Economy, and 5G on Radio Zindagi 1170AM

    Joe Jasin from DNA Partners is a seasoned executive and investor with portfolio companies in both The United States of America and also China. Joe has decades of experience in the telecommunications domain since the start of his career with 3G. Joe has also dealt with governments across the globe in both free market economies as well as command economies. Joe discusses the 5G evolution, navigating the governments and investments in this episode and podcast of The Silicon Dreams.






    What is the vision of DNA Partners






    DNA Partners invests in the category of Seed Round investing between 50,000 USD to 500,000 USD in US and China. Their portfolio investments are split between the two countries across companies that operate in the digital media value chain technologies space. The investment amounts are limited in the range of 50k to 500k USD but the valuations in both these countries are extremely different.






    Joe Jasin as an individual






    Joe talks to RJ Shara about his history as an executive working with small to big companies in Profit and Non Profit space in United States and in Asia. He also founded two companies which had a successful exit. His first company – Ice Wireless was founded in 1998 and had an exit in 2000. His corporate portfolio was focused around the evolution of wireless communication during which time he had to interact closely with governments in United States, Middle East and Asia. He also founded a mobile developer’s group in the Silicon Valley which is still running successfully after 16 years.






    What’s next for 5G and what are the barriers to adoption






    Joe and RJ Shara talk about the wireless evolution. Joe explains how 3G was a revolution in itself as it allowed for a breakthrough wireless communication allowing analog voice and digital data to be transmitted. In 4G, voice could have been digital but mobile operators chose to keep the voice analog. However in 5G everything will be digital and over TCP/IP which will be another breakthrough in itself. The governments are allocating more wireless spectrum to support 5G which has them competing against each other and this is being driven by consumer demand.






    What is the governments’ role in strategy building for startups and corporations






    The free enterprise or free market economy like The United States of America allows multiple competitors to exist in the same space which typically provides room for innovation. However in command economies or the top down approach, governments are more proactive in dictating protocols, etc. to be used in technology. There are pros and cons to both and there isn’t a right or wrong approach. In most Asian companies as compared to the USA, corporations and startups wait for governments to release the protocols and guidelines before they can start work. The former is a proactive government while latter is a reactive government.






    US and China are locked in a battle of patent numbers, however what’s more important is how many of these patents are commercialized






    What are other areas of interest for DNA Partnerts besides telecommunication






    Joe Jasin explains that DNA Partners deals with IP communication vs telecommunication where the former is a newer technology that surrounds us everyday like Zoom, Webex, etc. where the entire communication happens over TCP/IP. However besides IP Communication, DNA Partners and Joe Jasin also work with Digital Media Infrastructure companies.

    S1. E7. The Silicon Dreams by RJ Shara on Radio Zindagi - Hinglish - Attorney Roger Royse on Legal Challenges, Blockchain, Agtech, Coronavirus

    S1. E7. The Silicon Dreams by RJ Shara on Radio Zindagi - Hinglish - Attorney Roger Royse on Legal Challenges, Blockchain, Agtech, Coronavirus

    In this episode of Silicon Dreams with RJ Shara, Roger Royse, Founder at Royse Law Firm answers many questions ranging from Legal Challenges for startups in the United States to Blockchain to Agtech. He helps startups across the globe with corporate and tax laws, formation, contracting, acquisitions, and exits as they settle in California.


    For tech startups outside North America, Royse Law Firm helps them find their footing in the US markets. Roger helps these companies be legally compliant throughout their startup journey


    What is the Biggest Challenge for Starting/Running a Business in California Today


    Food, shelter, and living expenses have always been a problem but as of this year, AB-5 is the biggest hurdle for gig economy for both — companies and workers. This law has killed the Gig Economy because of the nature of rights and responsiblities that follow when a worker is classifed as an employee. For companies working in the Gig Economy model, this has increased the cost of doing business in California by at least 30%. The cost went up, the demand stayed the same and hence people were shelved.


    Roger Teaches Blockchain at Stanford’s School of Continuing Studies


    Royse Law firm was one of the first law firms in US to not only help startups and companies ride the wave of cryptocurrency and Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) but they were probably the first law firm in US to even accept payment in Bitcoin. Roger regrets not getting more of the Bitcoin payment back in those days! As Roger helped tech companies navigate the legal landscape, it was imperative that he himself understood more about Blockchain and Cryptocurrency in order to advise the startups he worked with. Roger ended up learning enough to not just help the startups with their legal challenges but also to teach a course at Stanford.


    Royse Law Firm and Agricultural Technologies (Agtech or Agritech)


    Royse Law Firm helps many Agtech startups as they solve the biggest challenge starting us in the face — how do we fulfill the demands for food for an ever growing population. Roger has many agtech clients but at the same time they have performed outreach for agtech companies on a herculean scale through annual conference which is now one of the biggest agtech conference in North America. Roger has also testified in front of the Congress and advised them on matters of Agtech. They don’t just help them with legal challenges but they also help them connect to Angel investors and Venture Capitalists.


    Dead On Arrival: How to Avoid the Legal Mistakes that Could Kill Your Startup


    Roger says that many startups irrespective of their origin end up performing the same legal mistakes. He summarizes his years of experience watching startups fail in his book Dead On Arrival. His hope is that people will learn from the mistakes of these failed startups and refrain from committing the same mistakes for their own startup. He is also planning to write a sequel about the common traits that he has observed in successful startups and the book will launch soon. Those interested in receiving a free copy of the book or those who simply want to get some advice from Roger can email him at rroyse@rroyselaw.com. Roger often hosts webinars and can be found as a speaker at many Idea-to-IPO events in the Bay Area.


    Acquisition of Royse Law by Haynes and Boone


    The Royse Law firm has grown over the past few years and in order to grow further they are now merging with Haynes and Boone. The acquisition will be finalized between April 30th and May 1st and Roger’s team of 27 attorneys will join Palo Alto based Haynes and Boone. Haynes and Boone is a global network of attorneys established in 1964 in Dallas. Today they have a network of over 575 attorneys. The Silicon Dreams wishes good luck to Roger Royse for the acquisition and thanks him for his willingness to advise ent
