In the video above, I am with Anthony Rose founder of SeedLegals an amazing platform that helps startups and investors complete the legal needed to build, grow and fund their business, at a fraction of the cost of using a law firm (you can watch the interview on LinkedIn if you prefer).
We talked about:
How Anthony came up with the idea for Seedlegals and why it's much needed
The problem that Seedlegals solves for both founders and investors
Seedlegal's strategy for acquiring new clients to the platform
How Anthony is helping both investors and founders to get funded faster and more cost-effectively and much more
So many of my clients and connections use SeedLegals (and in fact, I've used it too as an investor) - I'm blown away by how they make everything seem so simple! It was great to partner with them to deliver a Founders networking session in celebration of IWD.

I remember sitting down for lunch with one of my friends.
It was last year, so it was an altogether different affair to eating out now.
She had a great job which she loved, and while she didn’t have any desire to run a business, she was always curious as to how I was getting on.
She’d often ask me why I was so harsh on myself when it came to what I’d achieved as an entrepreneur.
And between us, I never had a good answer for her.
I guess, I just always felt like there were others out there who were doing the whole ‘business’ thing better than I was.
All of that despite having spent 20 years in business, building some great brands in the digital, marketing, and tech spaces - and selling businesses along the way too.
Plus successfully raising £200k on Dragon’s Den; although that business ended up failing in the end.
More on that another...
