ICEO – Venture Builder
While IT, design & marketing are our bread and butter, we’re neither a digital agency, nor a software house. Who we are is a company – a company that turns ideas into MVPs, MVPs into businesses, and businesses into industry giants.
We do it by following the “Less is more” philosophy, combining subtle creativity with high quality User Experience – perfectly balanced, as all things should be.. .
We believe that data-driven legal advice can change lives. The legal industry is drowning in data that it can never use.
Every day, millions of pages of case law, decisions and precedent are created and then ignored. Valuable insights are locked away in PDFs or scattered across hundreds of text documents, waiting to be pieced together.
This has serious real-world consequences. When someone’s rights are voilated, they should know that they have legal options.
When their lawyers advises them, they should feel confident they’re giving the best informed, most up-to-date advice. Right now, this isn’t happening – and real lives are feeling the impact.
Valla’s mission is to bring transparency and insight to the legal sector. We do this by analysing those millions of pages and extracting data from them.
We then turn that into insight that’s easy to understand and use – insight that can make a real difference in real people’s lives.. .
