Last night Jeff Ward, on behalf of the Duke Law Tech Lab (DLTL), asked the vTestify team back to discuss our experiences with a new group of DLTL companies. DLTL has been key to further developing the RTP area as a hub for legal technologies as well as solidifying Duke Law School as a thought leader and key influencer when it comes to the future of law. In their own words, DLTL is “a light-touch pre-accelerator for the next generation of startups that will change the way legal and civic services are delivered”.
Meeting with the seven new teams demonstrated not only the growth that this program brings to our area, but also highlights the need to help new legal tech companies grow and succeed. From the vTestify team, we had Mike Hewitt, Alex Hewitt, as well as myself, Ray Hadad, there to answer questions and discusses our experiences. We talked about how Duke Law’s resources and connections helped further develop our game-changing remote testimony platform, some of our suggestions for success, and I shared my experience of writing and presenting the Demo Day pitch, which won the audience choice award, which helped grow my professional career and solidify my experience with DLTL. Being the only DLTL company to come back and work with the new teams illustrates how far we’ve come as an innovative company since our time in DLTL last year.
