The MDR Lab is a 10 week incubator programme first launched in 2017 by UK powerhouse legal firm Mishcon de Reya. It's a way for the tech savvy firm to identify and test out emerging technologies that are digitising the legal tech space.
Companies start the programme with a clear goal and spend the next 10 weeks fine tuning their products and finding the right product-market fit. The programme concludes with an audience packed Demo Day attended by both Mishcon’s technology enthusiasts and external attendees. To date Mishcon de Reya has also invested in three of the previous MDR Lab cohorts.
Donna is one of six startups that was selected to participate in this year programme, which runs until the end of July. The programme provides an opportunity to work alongside a Mishcon team of lawyers, and technology experts, who will test out Donna, the AI legal assistant.
“As you know we love getting feedback about Donna, so the opportunity to work firsthand with the MDR team has been incredibly valuable for us. Over the last month MDR Lab has given us a birds eye view into subtleties of contract drafting that lawyers have to go through. We were able to identify a number of tweaks that will make Donna even more awesome and useful ” says Rik Nauta, Donna co-founder and CEO
