The Opportunity for Diverse Legaltech Founders to Make Their Mark

Recent history has shown that minorities and female-led companies have had difficulty in acquiring the necessary capital to succeed in the ever-growing legal technology market. As a direct result, not only do founders lose out on their dreams and ambitions, but, equally as important, the overall legal community is potentially deprived of more, perhaps better, innovations that could have otherwise improved the delivery & access of legal services. In this sobering session, our panel of experts will take a closer look at how the investment and legal communities could collaboratively more effectively in raising awareness on this issue and effecting real change.
