Palo Alto – July 1, 2019 – In the five years since the launch of Cooley GO, a free resource designed to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses, the microsite has been visited nearly 1.25 million times from people in 160+ countries.

“Assisting startups through all stages of growth has been a key objective of Cooley GO since we launched it five years ago,” said Matthew Bartus, co-chair of Cooley’s global emerging companies and venture capital practice group alongside Pat Mitchell. “Nothing speaks more clearly to the quality and necessity of our easy-to-use toolkit than the fact it has already received more than 3.3 million page views.”

“We are confident Cooley GO will continue to be a valued resource for entrepreneurs around the world as they strive toward growth, and we look forward to expanding the site’s offerings to support the next generation of innovation,” added Mitchell. 

Cooley GO provides access to guidance in a variety of areas and offers the ability to generate core legal documents, including a variety of financing documents.

It also provides a unique breadth and depth of free legal and business content to assist the technology community.
