Join us for a conversation between Startup Grind Founder, Derek Andersen and Atrium Co-founder + CEO, Justin Kan. If you're at all familiar with the startup world, Justin's name likely rings an entrepreneurial bell.
Prior to starting his current company, Justin founded companies like Kiko, the first AJAX web calendar; Justin.tv which later became Twitch, a video game streaming platform (acquired for $970mm by Amazon in 2014) and Socialcam, a mobile video sharing app (acquired for $60mm by Autodesk in 2012); and Exec, an on-demand maid service (acquired by Handybook in 2014).
Justin's current company, Atrium, is a full-service corporate law firm that uses modern technology to provide startups a legal experience that is fast, transparent, and price-predictable. Having been a repeat founder and investor both personally and as a Partner at Y Combinator for many years, Justin coins himself an involuntary user of legal services. With countless legal frustrations under his belt, he sought out to redefine the industry by removing the unknown barriers with transparency and operational efficiency to improve the delivery of services and inherently also the client-attorney relationship.
Derek will take us on a journey through Justin's long history with startups, being a founder and a funder, and his experience within the legal field.
