#98: Brett Colvin (Goodlawyer) - A Legal Startup, Being Too Frugal to Fail & Why There’s More VC Capital Available Than Ever
Welcome back to the rose bros podcast.
This episode, we are joined by Brett Colvin co-founder & CEO of Goodlawyer - a Canadian legaltech startup that leverages technology to make it faster, easier, and more affordable for you to get legal help.
Brett started Goodlawyer after working at one of Canada's largest law firms as a corporate lawyer when he saw that most people can't afford the legal help they need.
Typical firm rates were simply out of reach, so Brett teamed up with a developer, left the firm, and started Goodlawyer.
So far, the company raised $1MM in their pre-seed fundraise and are looking to raise $3MM in their upcoming seed round as they expand their business.
We sat down for a smooth cup of rose bros coffee and discussed the lifetime value of customers, word of mouth marketing, network effects, why its better than ever to raise venture capital funding and why Alberta is a great place for entrepreneurs.
