      What participating companies are saying about LexisNexis Legal Tech Accelerator

      Not only do you learn how to run a legal tech company from some of the best to do it, but the executive team is extremely well connected in Silicon Valley and can make introductions to people you never thought accessible.

      Ryan Alshak, CEO of Ping

      The LexisNexis accelerator program was unique because of their deep knowledge of the law. Through the program, we were able to learn new ways to market specifically to the legal industry. It was also very helpful to us to learn best practices from people with a wealth of experience in sales and other disciplines.

      We believe that having the great fortune to participate in both programs, basically back-to-back, definitely gave us an advantage in the industry. We were able to learn from industry veterans, connect with influencers and decision-makers, and validate our hypothesis in a much more rapid time frame than we ever could have imagined.
