Innovation hub Communitech has partnered with Thomson Reuters Labs and Gowling WLG to hold a legal, regulatory and tax bootcamp scheduled this fall in Kitchener, Ont.

“For us, this bootcamp represents an exciting opportunity to connect with, mentor and potentially partner with the next generation of legal innovators working to transform our industry,” added Viona Duncan, Gowling WLG partner and co-chair of the firm’s global tech group.

The six-day bootcamp, titled “Tipping the Scales,” will focus on Canadian start-ups in the legal, tax and regulatory fields and help these businesses get more customers and fundraise, a statement from the organizations said.

It will be held in two parts — on Oct. 21 to 23 and Nov. 18 to 20 — and will offer tactical, one-on-one sales and marketing advice, as well as the opportunity to meet with industry experts.

“We’ve seen great success with start-up bootcamps, and we’re excited to offer this for those companies in the legal, regulatory and tax sectors,” said Iain Klugman, CEO of Communitech. “We’re also proud to have the strong support of our partners like Thomson Reuters and Gowling WLG.”
