"Founded wouldn’t be where it is today without having the positive impact that the LIZ had on our startup. It really allowed us to get our bearings in terms of a company and allowed us to grow to where we are now.”

“It gave us space to grow a company and the conversations we had with other people who are building legal technology products was invaluable. I think it is pretty unique.”
