IMAGINE A NEW APPROACH TO LAW
Cuatrecasas Acelera was the first accelerator program for startups to be launched by a European law firm. After seven editions, we have supported more than 40 startups with the aim of detecting the best talent among European projects with great potential, providing them with legal, business and technological support, as well as access to clients and funding.
The accelerator program looks for Legaltech startups and startups with innovative legal challenges. The Fast Track program was created with the aim of testing technology from international scaleups that are aligned with the challenges identified by Cuatrecasas. A use case is defined and the solution is co-created or integrated.
