I've attended quite a few legal tech/operations related conferences and trade shows over the past 10 years - both as a practicing attorney and as the CEO of PactSafe. Most of the them have a heavily vendor-driven agenda geared toward law firms. I'm often left with very little hope that the legal profession is on the right track to evolve and embrace efficiency and technology. Last week, though, I had the privilege to attend the 2017 CLOC (Corporate Legal Operations Consortium) Institute in Las Vegas, and I left with a much different outlook.
Do you want to build your own career path in a young, hungry, SaaS startup? Have you ever visited the hip, culturally booming Broad Ripple Village? Are you interested in working there on a regular basis in prime real-estate walking distance from coffee shops, restaurants, and cultural trails? Does a company space ship mean anything to you?
PactSafe launches ‘Transact’ to accelerate and transform the way businesses send, negotiate and sign contracts.
Transact speeds up the painful process of getting contracts signed with the fastest eSignature solution available.
From moving on in to moving on up— launching products and launching parternships, PactSafe has had a tremendous year and we couldn't have done it without your support! While we plan on taking 2016 by full force, let’s first take a second to look back on our noteworthy moments from 2015.
The last week has been filled with excitement for the PactSafe team as they first announced several major accomplishments, including additional funding, a new developer API called Vault, and the completion of San-Francisco based Acceleprise program.
PactSafe Gains Momentum: Secures $1.2M in Total Funding, Launches New Developer API, and Completes San Francisco-Based Acceleprise Program
It's a proud day for me and my team. Today, it is with great excitement that we announce PactSafe has raised over $1.2M in total funding, has launched a new Legal API called Vault for embedding contracts anywhere, and is completing the prestigious Bay Area Acceleprise program. It’s because of you—our customers, partners, investors, and friends—that we are where we are today. And we’re just getting started.
In tune with the changing of the seasons, Autumn has brought PactSafe lots of positive change this past month! As we roll further into Q4—our involvement with Acceleprise is coming to a close, we are adding artwork to our office walls, and desks have been rearranged to make room for our newest team member, Kate Davis.
In case you are just tuning in, PactSafe is fortunate to be participating in Acceleprise right now — an awesome accelerator based out of San Francisco focused on enterprise software, founded in 2014, and backed by a roster of great SaaS founders and executives. This accelerator goes above and beyond company dreams providing funding, mentorship, office space, access to potential investors and customers, and community support to promising early stage SaaS companies over a four-month program.
This week at PactSafe, we have added tables, chairs, more desks, monitors, and walls of whiteboards to our space. You can now sit in almost every room! We also added Director of Business Development Jason Everhart to our team. Being pretty fresh to the world of PactSafe myself, I asked Jason these questions to help everyone get to know him a little better.
We here at PactSafe are having an awesome time as we build our business — we're experiencing great growth, filling out our new office space, and hiring some awesome people! As a young company, we were thrilled and honored to be included in the Orr Fellowship program and bring our first ever Orr Fellow on board, Amber Ferrari. She just started this week and I asked her to share a little bit more about herself. She was kind enough to answer the questions below.
