I would try to contact lawyers directly, pointing them out to specific potential clients on your platform. It's a labor-intensive job but be sure that after they get their first client on the platform, they will stick around. I would target "fresh" independent lawyers that are trying to build a career. They are looking for a client base and are hangry.


Hi, you need someone that has done investment before. An investor is better than a startup founder that has raised capital. An investor looks daily at a startup pitch and knows exactly what are the key elements that a pitch need to be interesting. Fundraising is a full-time job and a lot of startup waste time and resources trying to fundraise when they can't (the basic metrics are not there). So step number one is to check if you have the essential elements to start the conversation with a potential investor. Then you need to start working on all the investment material. When you have all the investment material in place, you can begin connecting with investors.
