Imagine a new approach to law
Cuatrecasas Acelera was the first startup accelerator in Europe driven by a law firm. After five editions, we have promoted more than 30 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.
From the acceleration program we look for Legaltech startups and startups with high legal complexity. 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.
