Docracy is a home for contracts and other legal documents, socially curated by the communities that use them. Our mission is to make these documents freely available for everyone, while in the process making them easier to customize and use. No more shady templates behind a paywall where you click download and just hope for the best. Instead we offer reputable, transparent sources and social proof to help you find something as close as possible to the perfect document.
The first version of Docracy was created at an all-night TechCrunch hackathon. It was started as a reaction to the problems Matt and John had finding reasonable documents when running their previous business. After discovering others were having the same problem, they began working on it full time with the backing of First Round Capital, Vaizra Seed Fund, Quotidian Ventures and Rick Webb.
