Drafting Tool Define Named As Tech Nation Rising Star

Contract drafting tool, Define, has been named by innovation group, Tech Nation, as one of its Rising Stars 3.0, which means that they are now classed as ‘one of the 10 most exciting early stage scaleups in the UK’. They are the only legal tech company in the group.

And if you are wondering what Define does, the easiest way to find out is to watch this short AL TV Product Walk Through, which shows what it can do.

Esme Caulfield, Competitions Lead, Tech Nation, said: ‘The Tech Nation Rising Stars competition highlights the best in class companies in the UK at the seed and pre-Series A stages, and shows the amazing tech companies that make up the UK’s pipeline.’

Artificial Lawyer caught up with the team and spoke to founder and CEO, Nnamdi Emelifeonwu, about the accolade.

How does it feel to have gained this award? What does it mean to you all as a growing business?

We are truly humbled to be announced as one of Tech Nation’s Rising Stars and one of their top 10 tech scale-ups in the UK. It is a testament to the hard work put in by the team as a whole during what was a tough period for everyone in 2020. Legal Tech has moved out of its nascency and is being increasingly recognised on the national and international stage so we’re proud to represent some of the exciting new technology emerging in this sector.

What do you think made Define stand out?

Feedback from the judges indicated that they really liked the team composition, our value proposition and traction to date. We are genuine believers that our team is our biggest asset and something we continue to receive positive feedback on. 

How is the company doing since we last spoke? How are things growing?

Define has been firing on all cylinders since we last spoke and we have some big customer announcements coming up so watch this space (hint: we have recently brought onboard one of the world’s largest law firms as well as one of the biggest global financial institutions as customers).

We are also building out both the technology and commercial teams and have two exciting new products on the roadmap for this year as well as interest from verticals outside of legal. All in all, it is an invigorating time to be a part of the team and we truly believe the sky’s the limit.
