About this event

What’s the best that could happen to SG Kyiv?

Yes, we are getting back to offline events. In 2 weeks time we will finally meet. Remember the date - June, the 8th.

On this occasion we have invited the startup with one of the coolest stories in Ukraine. The team that in 3 years conquered the world and made an exit - please, meet our guest speaker AXDRAFT! This is one of the 15 teams that has been in the Ukrainian Delegation to SG Global 2020.

What is AXDRAFT?

AXDRAFT is a contract lifecycle management platform that helps lawyers and non-legal teams draft error-free legal documents 7x faster.

AXDRAFT was born out of the value of time.

In the fast-paced world we see today, routine is among the main roadblocks on the way to success.

We have united best practices from the world of technology and the legal realm to develop an easy-to-use and intuitive contract lifecycle management platform that allows business and legal teams to draft contracts up to 70% faster.

In such a way, AXDRAFT allows to minimize routine by building mistake-free documents in minutes instead of hours.

Our product can be tailored to automate legal, sales, HR, procurement, property lease, and other processes, supplying the teams with top-notch documents and the possibility to negotiate, approve, and sign the contracts without leaving the platform.

Let AXDRAFT do the boring technical work, and focus on the tasks that you actually love.

AXDRAFT was founded in 2017. Since then they have gone through the YC Acceleration program and raised $1M+ investment seed round with a valuation of $10M+. Many of AXDRAFT clients are in the US, among them Slack and Walmart. In 2020 the Ukrainian startup made an exit to international legal-tech company Onit. AXDRAFT continues to work under their brand name in their Ukrainian office.
