Legal AI chatbot LawDroid has been selected by MaRS for its Venture Start program.

MaRS Venture Start entrepreneurs gain access to:

  • High-intensity, immersive workshops on a variety of key topics such as hiring talent and securing capital

  • A range of service providers that advise MaRS-supported ventures on key topics such as intellectual property and accounting best practices

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.
