Like Kickstarter, but for legal cases
CrowdJustice took on Brexit. Now the Kickstarter-like site is bringing its legal crowdfunding model to the United States.
The platform for public interest litigation covers legal costs through online donations. The challenge to Article 50 campaign, taking on Brexit, raised nearly $200,000 in U.S. dollars.
On Tuesday, the company, led by CEO and founder Julia Salasky, announced $2 million in new funding from Venrock and First Round Capital, Bessemer Venture Partners and Kindred Capital, according to VC deal site Finsmes. The cash infusion will open up the site for more U.S. cases.
