FAQ

Welcome fellow Pioneer!

What is Legalpioneer.org?

On Legalpioneer.org you can locate and explore businesses and ideas impacting the legal space across the globe. We are a non-profit and open community proudly build without any donations, government grants, or venture capital. To remain sustainable we designed the platform to be:

  • low cost using open- and free-tier software;
  • low maintenance using robotic process automation;
  • low bandwidth using minimal file & image storage;
  • low energy so always in dark mode to save up to 23.5%.

Like Wikipedia, Legalpioneer.org is fueled by passion and financed with love to stay forever free.

However, our hosting provider doesn’t accept passion as payment so we opened a shop to help cover those costs.

What is a Legalpioneer?

The law impacts society in different ways. There are many companies and communities that directly or indirectly use technology to keep society fair and safe. Traditionally, this was the job of legal and tax professionals who used technology to manage their practice or research laws (LegalTech, Tax). Then came marketplaces to decentralize and democratize the task of solving conflicts (Law).

Now more companies build tools to comply with the law (RiskTech) and to support citizens in exercising their rights and obligations (CivicTech). For example, you can find tools that manage contracts or report sexual harassment.

Our mission is to automatically collect and showcase the pioneers that support a safe society.
