50 female founders in legaltech
Here is a potentially useful resource: Kristen Sonday, founder and CEO of US A2J platform Paladin has put together a ‘Fifty Female Founders in Legaltech’ list and asks that the market support them, given the lack of diversity among legal tech founders. The list is growing and reached 57 at last check.
“The unfortunate reality is that women make up less than 15 percent of founders within legaltech. Nonetheless, there are currently more than 50 fantastic female founders in legaltech building impactful solutions to critical needs. I believe this group is uniquely poised to apply their experiences and knowledge to real legal issues and help eliminate the justice gap,” says Sonday.
Here is the list, with handy LinkedIn and Twitter links: https://airtable.com/shrSykxonRAQtIyNW/tblCcT1IWUNxlLvEA/viwmDtFPPVoUo5JNy
It doesn’t yet include more established vendors, such as Peppermint Technology, which was founded by Arlene Adams (albeit she is now an exec director having handed over to CEO Gary Young.)
