LegalTech – War stories and Other Disasters
11.00 – 11.15am | Maia Room
Xakia was ‘born’ 2.5 years ago. The journey to this point for any legal technology is never straight or smooth and even success stories are littered with sleep deprivation, near-disasters and toe-blisters from walking to limit the cost of an Uber. Jodie will walk the audience through some of the scariest, silliest and most hilarious moments of the Xakia journey to date – seen through the eyes of a lawyer-turned-tech founder as she has had to navigate building a team, a product and a client base across three continents – all at the same time.
Jodie is an innovator, entrepreneur and a passionate advocate of #LegalTech. In 2016, Jodie founded Xakia Technologies.
