Founder Q&A: Robert Flint, Adviserly

This blog is part of our Tech In Review: 21-22 report series. Head to the hub to access the reports, insight and analysis.

What is your mission as a technology company?

To enable small businesses, migrants and digital nomads to follow their dreams and ambitions across borders with ease.

What have been the main highlights of 2021 for your business?

Being accepted onto the Leicester Startups programme. 

The last 18 months have had a huge impact on every level of the economy and society, what are the main impacts you’ve seen within your sector?

The legal world is notoriously old fashioned, and it had to adapt to home working with a bump. But it did adapt, and is a sign that the legal industry cannot avoid technological change.

There has been a huge amount of legal work to be done, leading to high demand for junior and mid range associates, and astronomical salaries.

In the meantime the court backlog grows and access to justice, so long delayed, becomes in effect denied.

What are the primary challenges you see facing tech in 2022?

In the long run – climate change. Tech can help solve the problems faced by the world, or increase them. If climate change trashes the world economy, it probably trashes the tech sector too.

What are your growth plans for next year?

Launch the platform, grow the network, get some revenue and our first funding round!
