We are coming to Melbourne to meet the coolest LawTech startups in the region! We are coming to Melbourne to meet the coolest LawTech startups in the region! Legal Geek is a startup first network and we are really excited to be visiting Melbourne for the first time, we organise a conference with over 2,000 attendees from around the world. In 2017, we traveled around Europe in a 1972 VW Camper van and this year we want to get out of our London bubble to visit the best hubs for tech in the world.


The event

Hear from three speakers (agenda below). Then we are inviting startups to pitch in the Melbourne qualifying round, to be eligible to win a travel grant to our 2,000 person London conference. The World Tour overall winner will win a travel grant, receive a startup alley exhibitor pitch and a speaker slot. Startups will have 1 x minute to set up and 3 x minutes to pitch each to our judges. Sign up as a startup or attendee to meet the coolest legal startups in Melbourne.

Not going to be in Melbourne? Come to our Sydney event on the 31st May!
