Valla is a Scottish startup on a mission to make legal support accessible and affordable for everyone. Their revolutionary new tool helps people to take their employer to tribunal — even if they can't afford a lawyer. Valla was founded by two senior women from the tech industry who were tired of seeing marginalised people being treated unfairly by their employers and not being able to afford justice.
"I met Jackie and the AccelerateHER team at a bootcamp event that taught us how to perfect our company pitch - we were just starting out with Valla and I still didn't have any idea how to go about being a first-time CEO. Since then, AccelerateHER has been with us every step of the way — Jackie connected me with mentors, introduced me to potential clients, and encouraged us to pitch to Investing Women. We're now an Investing Women portfolio company and so thankful that we're part of this community!"
