Unless you’re in the legal business, doing legal stuff is probably the last thing you want to deal with as an entrepreneur. It’s complicated, expensive but essential to get it right. Dutch startup Ligo aims to make it a little bit easier to start and run a business, by automating the legal groundwork. Their new feature Workflows just went live, so we spoke with CEO and founder Wendy Bogers.
Practical legal steps
“We really think the legal market is ready for innovation”, says Wendy Bogers. Together with CTO Sander Nieuwenhuizen and CPO Paul Reijnierse she came up with the idea of Ligo’s Workflows: an interactive legal checklist for entrepreneurs. “We have a step-by-step explanation of what needs to be done when certain important events arise. Like raising an investment, hiring or firing an employee or developing software by a third party.” By completing the Workflow the entrepreneur is sure he has thought of everything, no detail remains overlooked, when dealing with an event. Bogers: “We’ve made the Workflows as practical as possible, so they are suitable for almost every situation an entrepreneur can run into.”
