Kiwi Camara

Founder & CEO of DISCO

Kiwi Camara shatters norms. From earning his computer science and law degrees as a teenager, to launching his own successful law practice, to disrupting the tech industry with a company that is transforming the practice of law, Kiwi has established himself as a transformative and visionary leader.  

After receiving a B.S. in computer science from Hawaii Pacific University and a J.D. from Harvard Law School, Kiwi clerked for Judge Harris Hartz of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, was a Ph.D. student in economics at Stanford, taught corporate law at Northwestern, and was a founding partner of Camara & Sibley LLP in Houston.

Kiwi founded DISCO in 2013 with a vision to help legal professionals deliver the highest quality of services more efficiently through technology that enables lawyers to focus on the practice of law. Bringing together great engineering and a deep understanding of what lawyers do and how they work, Kiwi has led DISCO to become one of the only publicly traded legal technology companies, following DISCO's July 2021 IPO (NYSE:LAW). Under his leadership, DISCO was recognized as one of the 2019 and 2020 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 and the 2020 and 2021 Forbes Cloud 100.

Kiwi was named a 2022 finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Central South Award. In 2021, Kiwi was recognized by the Austin Business Journal as Best CEO, Public Company, and as a Top CEO by The Austin Chamber of Commerce’s Greater Austin Business Awards. He was also one of the Top 50 SaaS CEOs of 2020 by The Software Report.
