Episode 6 of the Legal Tech StartUp Focus Podcast -- Interview with Raymond Blijd, Founder and CEO of LegalComplex.com and LegalPioneer.org
In this episode of the Legal Tech StartUp Focus podcast, Charlie Uniman, your podcast host, discusses the legal tech industry with Raymond Blijd. Raymond is a master analyst when it comes to providing highly relevant data and outstanding visualizations to people who want to get insights into the direction in which legal technology companies (and companies in related fields like regulatory tech, financial tech and civics tech) are heading from a business standpoint.
As is typical in discussions with our podcast guests, the episode kicks off with Raymond's discussing his journey from law school to founding his two tech business data analytics companies, LegalComlex.com and LegalPioneer.org and from there the discussion covers what distinguishes these two data companies from one another. In particular, Raymond describes LegalComplex.com's for-profit data offerings and customer base and then goes on to describe LegalPioneer.org's non-profit mission, its ambition to create a community for people interested in tracking developments in the legal tech startup field and related technology fields and its goal of eventually open-sourcing much of the data it collects.
After that kick-off discussion, Charlie asks Raymond about (i) legal tech market trends that Raymond's data analysis has discovered, (ii) what the data says about the legal tech startup categories that are most successfully attracting investor interest, (iii) predictions for new product categories for legal tech startups and (iv) what data/statistics in the past year of his research most surprised Raymond.
