Last week, ABA TECHSHOW presented the third annual Startup Pitch Competition, which I was thrilled to moderate and help organize. Fifteen legal technology startups presented three-minute pitches before a live audience of TECHSHOW attendees, who then voted for their favorite.

In this special edition of LawNext, we partner with the Legal Talk Network to present a recording of the live event. Listen as the 15 startups present their pitches, and then hear the final results and the announcement of the winner.

The 15 startups that participated were:

  1. Lawble.
  2. dealWIP.
  3. DocStyle LLC.
  4. Connective Counsel.
  5. WarRoom.
  6. JurisBytes.
  8. TrialLine.
  9. Kinnami Software Corporation.
  10. Fixi Subscription Plans.
  11. Documate.
  13. EffortlessLegal.
  14. Your Firm App.

A huge thanks to the Legal Talk Network and Executive Producer Laurence Colletti for recording the competition and sharing the recording with us.
