Traklight is the only self-guided software platform to identify business risks and capture the value of ideas and intellectual property for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs), essentially a business legal checkup. In addition to helping SMBs and investors accurately identify and minimize business and legal risks and maximize the value of intangible assets, Traklight licenses its platform to attorneys, other professionals, and software platforms to streamline the client development process; triage, prequalify and educate customers; and generate additional billable hours, leads, or revenue. As of 2018, there is also a personal legal checkup available to license.
