The Pro Bono Innovation Fund Shark Tank will invigorate entrepreneurship and replication in legal aid pro bono. Four Pro Bono Innovation Fund grantee “Innovators” have been selected to inspire you to use technology to do pro bono more efficiently and effectively with meaningful client impact. Innovators will pitch a technological breakthrough product, concept, or service from their Pro Bono Innovation Fund projects. Audience members will be the Sharks, whose job it is to identify the most promising replications that the Pro Bono Innovation Fund has to offer. Sharks will bring the perspective of diverse pro bono models, technological experience, and communities across the country, and will sink their teeth into Innovators’ ideas to test the strength and viability of replication. This session will use Poll Everywhere to capture live results to select the Shark Tank winner and allow the audience to provide feedback to each Innovator.
