LexisNexis® today announced that six new technology start-ups have graduated from its 12-week Legaltech Accelerator Program, which helps promising companies quickly gain traction in the rapidly evolving legal tech industry.
The six recent participants in the LexisNexis Legaltech Accelerator Program include:
As part of the program, participants engaged in a rigorous curriculum designed for early- to mid-stage legal start-ups, including business model development, fundraising, marketing, sales, product development, hiring and team building, technology and more. In addition to receiving hands-on mentorship and training from numerous LexisNexis executives, start-ups had access to the company’s cutting-edge tools, data, technologies and established relationships with businesses, VCs and influencers to help grow their organizations.
“Across the board, participants in the third round of our Legaltech Accelerator Program benefited tremendously, learning how to navigate the legal landscape and exponentially grow their start-up businesses. We’re excited to watch these innovative entrepreneurs apply this knowledge and succeed,” said Owen Byrd, General Counsel and Chief Evangelist at Lex Machina.
“The legal tech world is relatively small compared to other tech specialties. Having the expertise and support of LexisNexis was an opportunity that I knew would benefit both the development of my company and my personal growth as a founder,” said Kisha Brown, CEO of Justis Connection. “I was exposed to so much information during my six weeks in the Legaltech accelerator, ranging from sales and marketing advice to fundraising and pitching strategies. Completing the program gave me a solid foundation for growing Justis Connection in the coming year. I anticipate a very powerful launch and plan to aggressively expand my network of lawyers.”
Spencer Simonsen, CEO of Disputly, significantly changed his business model while participating in the program. “The Legaltech Accelerator Program connected us to experts with differing points of view, which changed the way we looked at our service. The program helped sharpen our focus on the problem we are trying to solve and the value we bring to the customer, and we also learned how to structure the company to ensure we could properly deliver services to customers while continuing to expand.”
