Pitchpitchpitch! ReInvent Law are arranging a pitch competition next week. An excellent initiative and the first one specifically for legal startups I've heard about. As a cynical old person who has hung around young and innovative startupsters a lot last year at the Startup Sauna I would just like to warn that while pitching is fine and useful for early-stage companies, it is easy to overdo and just keep pitchpitchpitching instead of working on the product. (Oh, and Onomatics got seed funding without even presenting the pitch deck. Neener neener.)

Results of said competition @ReneeKnake: @ReInventLaw StartUP Competition winners! Best overall LoquiTab Runner up @Kat_Hennessy RiskADvantage Most creative @A_Ninhja p(AR)adigmLaw
