The Interview

In this interview we are talking to Lucas Weiper (https://www.linkedin.com/in/lucas-weiper-0828a6167/), CEO and Co-Founder of the “almost legaltech” GoContract (https://go-contract.com/). GoContract is headquartered in the beautiful city of Koblenz (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koblenz), which is located between Frankfurt and Cologne. They offer end to end contract management.

“Lower Salary for startups is not an issue, if you can work with vision” Lucas Weiper, CEO and Co-Founder GoContract

A very brief startup history

In the past, Lucas worked for a digital agency and the (also) Koblenz-based startup Sdui (https://www.sdui.de/). He learned a lot about startups, digital marketing and even recruiting there. Actually, he even encountered the problem, GoContract is now trying to solve. The startup helps startups and corporates with the tracking and management of their contracts. They offer end to end contract management.

“I can not advise to outsource software development. You will need the IP in later VC funding rounds” Lucas Weiper, CEO and Co-Founder GoContract

Startup weekend

They started their company at Startup Weekend Koblenz (http://communities.techstars.com/germany/koblenz/startup-weekend) and found there their remaining co-founders. They set up the company with 6 people, where only three founders actually hold equity. The other three hold sub-shares.
