What Our Startups Have to Say

“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.”

Derek Hopfner

Co-Founder, Founded

“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.”

Laura van Wyngaarden

“We took advantage of everything the LIZ has to offer, including networking events, Industry Nights, CEO circles. We couldn’t have done it without the LIZ’s help.”
