LatAm List – Founded in 2017, the Chilean legaltech startup, Lexgo, made it all the way to the final interview in Mountain View with Y Combinator last year, but fell short of being accepted. The accelerator still invested US$10K to help Lexgo fund its expansion across the Pacific Alliance this year and the Chilean startup has Mexico in its sights.
Lexgo is online software to help startups access and create essential legal documents at much lower cost than regular legal services. As a lawyer, co-founder Leonardo Barrientos, knew there had to be a more affordable and efficient way to help startups get the documents and contracts they need.
“Our clients can create their legal documents in minutes, and receive consultation from a lawyer who is in charge of solving everyday issues with their businesses. We offer on-demand support for any specialized issues but with full transparency on our costs so there are never any surprises at the end,” said Barrientos in an interview with El Mercurio.
Lexgo currently works with 250 startup clients in Chile such as Algramo, First Job, and Retail Rocket. They plan to expand to Mexico using the investment from Y Combinator.
