Legaltech startups (and scaleups alike) often struggle with strategic, legal and administrative issues. A brilliant idea can fail as a product if the founders neglect these crucial issues at an early stage.
To help legaltech entrepreneurs to work on their skills, ELTA partnered with Sudolabs and Sparring to provide a workshop on product / tech and legal issues. Sudolabs and Sparring professionally guide legaltech startups on their quest of disrupting global legal markets. They have helped over 200 startups and founded a couple of legaltech startups themselves.
The workshop will be split into two parts.
«Building a startup – early steps» will cover these topics:
• How to validate product ideas early enough
