BRYTER has hired CrowdJustice’s head of legal and partnerships Joanna Sidhu to lead and build its community platform BRYTER OPEN, which gives non-profits and academic institutions free access to its no-code platform.

BRYTER Open was launched this summer and Sidhu, a former Ashurst lawyer who is based in London, will lead the team in supporting the integration, rollout and adoption of BRYTER’s technology within eligible organizations across the world. BRYTER says they have already received hundreds of applications from organizations looking at how they can use its technology in socially impactful ways.

At CrowdJustice, and its parent company Legl, Sidhu was responsible for building relationships with the legal community, strategic partnerships and growth efforts.

“Joanna impressed us with a profile that perfectly fits the new role,” says Michael Grupp, CEO of BRYTER. “In working at Ashurst in London, she has demonstrated a deep understanding of both the legal and professional services markets. In addition to this, she has acquired and proven a deep understanding of technology, business operations and a passion for entrepreneurship in her previous role. Joanna has worked extensively with non-profits and NGOs on using technology with great success, which is both incredibly valuable and rare.”

BRYTER, which in June raised $16m Series A funding, enables people with no coding experience to automate expert knowledge. It has experienced rapid, international and cross-sector growth, evidencing the increasing need for automation and digital solutions across industries. In the non-commercial space, this has been especially true for the academic area, where BRYTER has worked closely with universities including York, Goettingen and Kings College, London.
Sidhu said: “I believe in the potential for technology to level the playing field. BRYTER is leading the way with its no code platform. When non-profits, grassroot organizations and academic institutions have access to this incredibly powerful technology, the potential for change is huge.”
