London digital contract platform raises £16.9m in Series B funding

A London contract automation platform has raised £16.9m in Series B funding, increasing its market valuation by more than five times.

Juro is now used in over 85 countries and by 6,000 companies including Deliveroo, Cazoo, Trustpilot and TheRealReal. Eight Roads, the global venture capital fund which previously invested in Alibaba, Cazoo and Appsflyer, led the round.

Existing investors Union Square Ventures, Point Nine Capital, Seedcamp and Taavet Hinrikus, co-founder of Wise, formerly known as TransferWise, also participated in the funding round. Eight Roads Partner, Alston Zecha, joins Juro’s board.

Juro is a contract automation platform enabling legal counsel and their teams to manage contracts in a single web browser. By providing a single unified workspace, Juro enables clients to avoid a patchwork of online and offline tools and processes, expediting critical business processes.

Juro will use the new investment to expand into the US and Europe, further develop the platform’s customer experience and power the company’s executive recruitment drive as it ramps up its go-to market strategy. Juro currently has offices in London and Riga and a growing remote hub, and is hiring in all locations.

Richard Mabey, CEO and co-founder of Juro, said: “We started Juro in order to make legal contracts frictionless and accessible to everyone. Legacy processes using Word, PDFs and email slow things down not only for lawyers but for everyone who handles contracts.

“In the last 12 months our customers have processed more than 250,000 contracts in Juro, without leaving their browser. This has saved customers millions of hours of time and helped them to agree terms faster than ever. We are delighted to partner with Eight Roads as we scale up.”

The £16.9m Series B Raise follows a £3.8m Series A led by Union Square Ventures (USV) - early backers of Twitter, Coinbase, Twilio and Kickstarter. USV was joined in the Series A by existing investors Point Nine Capital, Seedcamp and Taavet Hinrikus. The investment round takes Juro’s total funds raised to £22.7m.
