Facebook Picks LawDroid for FbStart Program

Legal AI chatbot LawDroid has been selected by social media giant Facebook for its FbStart program.

LawDroid will now get $40,000 in credits, free tools and services from Facebook and its more than 30 partners including Facebook AD Credits, Amazon AWS, MailChimp and UserTesting.

The chatbot was launched in November 2016 by US lawyer Tom Martin. Prior to founding LawDroid, Tom created flat fee legal services marketplace LawDeal in 2012.

The chatbot allows entrepreneurs to incorporate on their smartphone for free using Facebook Messenger.

“My aim is to eliminate barriers to innovation and encourage entrepreneurs to follow their dreams,” said Tom.
