$1M developer fund started by Clio

Richard Harris Richard Harris in Cloud Services Friday, September 29, 2017

Developer fund and developer prize have been announced by Clio for their legal team cloud services platform.

Clio has announced a $1 million developer fund supporting the future of technology. As part of the fund, Clio is hosting Launch//Code, a unique developer contest with a $100,000 prize, to find the the most creative, powerful, and useful integrations for Clio.

"We believe technology will be instrumental in defining the future of the practice of law," said Jack Newton, CEO and co-founder of Clio. "And we realize that no single company can provide the breadth and scope of innovation that’s required to take this industry to the next level. This developer fund and contest will, we expect, spark an explosion of creativity and innovation in the tech industry."

The winning company or business will design and develop an app that is built against and deeply integrates with Clio’s API. The app needs to address a difficulty legal professionals face daily when managing their business. Potential finalists will leverage the complex array of client and matter data stored in Clio to offer new, seamless processes to streamline traditionally cumbersome workflows. Contest entries can range from apps that have previously demonstrated market traction to innovative functioning ideas that have yet to be tested.

Finalists will be invited to Clio Cloud Conference 2018 and have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to the keynote audience and panel of judges. The winning company or business will receive the $100,000 prize, but all entrants who complete the necessary requirements and are approved by Clio will be featured on Clio’s new App Directory, bringing their app to a growing community of over 150,000 legal professionals.

"Technology is the key to transforming the practice of law, for good, and living up to our shared ideals of improving lives," said Newton. "We're excited to support the success of the best developers in the industry."
