Pre-seed funding of $2.3 million was raised by Formally, a Palo Alto-based platform for legal collaboration that allows users to work with and hire attorneys.
The round was led by Bessemer Venture Partners with participation from BBG Ventures, Unshackled Ventures, Ulu Ventures, Graph Ventures, Dorm Room Fund, and angels including Kiwi Camara, CEO at legal tech giant DISCO.
The company plans to use the funds for expansion, to scale their impact in immigration and to expand into other areas like legal compliance.
Led by Amélie Vavrovsky, founder and CEO Formally is a legal collaboration company seeking to use intelligent technology and accessible design to simplify legal processes and increase access to justice. Their most recent product allows international founders to apply for visas in the U.S. to establish and grow their businesses.
