In a recent interview with Law360 Pulse, Kathy Zhu, CEO of Streamline AI, opened up about her journey to co-founding Streamline AI and dismantling the legal black box.
After her first-hand experiences at companies like DoorDash, Zhu saw an opportunity to improve how legal teams functioned. This led to the creation of Streamline AI, a game-changing solution that automates intake and workflows for in-house legal teams. The platform aims to dismantle the "legal black box" perception, showcasing legal departments as revenue enablers, not cost centers.
Kathy discussed raising capital in a challenging market and overcoming initial skepticism from potential investors about why Streamline AI was different from contract lifecycle management (CLM) solutions. The result? An oversubscribed seed round with powerhouse investors like Oceans Ventures and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati.
In this growing legal tech landscape, Streamline AI distinguishes itself through tangible results. Kathy proudly shared how customers like Pantheon reduced their legal response time from weeks to just 24 hours. Her vision for 2023 and beyond? A tech-driven legal department celebrated as a revenue enabler, shaping a brighter, more efficient future for companies.
