Excerpt from WRAL TechWire:
DURHAM – Former professors Sonja Ebron and Debra Slone know first-hand how tricky it can be to get caught up in the United State’s legal system.
“We’ve had to represent ourselves in court, unfortunately, too many times,” said Ebron. “As academics, we felt a responsibility once we understood the lay of the land to share it with others.”
So they built Courtroom5 — an educational site launched in 2017, which eventually grew into a full-fledged case management platform.
On Friday, the startup — which has already raised $100,000 in capital — won the Black Founders Exchange Demo Day competition. They’re now headed on an all-expense-paid trip to the San Francisco Bay area to meet with strategic partners and investors.
