Year in Review: 10 milestones from 2015

Dec 21, 2015 11:31:55 AM

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.

1. Software Debut. Like a Boss.

February 2015, PactSafe debuted our software as the first of its kind! Nobody knew there would be a solution built to simplify everything about digital legal agreements, and empower businesses to focus on their core digital business without the hassle of dedicating valuable time and resources to managing their digital legal. But, here we are!

2. A Couple of Awesome Award Nominations

We were so excited to be nominated for two Mira Awards this yearTech Innovation of the Year and Tech StartUp of the Year. Indy has such a great technology community, and we were honored to be listed side by side with the other amazing companies nominated this year!

We also ended up coming home with plaques recognizing both of the nominations. They look sweet on our orange wall.

3. PactSafe's new COO

Eric Prugh, hailing from Indy’s ExactTarget and Salesforce teams, joined PactSafe in March as COO. He played an enormous role in PactSafe’s 2015 success, and we like having him around to make tough decisions and guide our product (as well as use his super power of talking to computers).

4. HQ on the Map

The PactSafe world headquarters opened up in Broad Ripple Village this past May! From assembling desks and chairs to applying whiteboards and Fatheads—it’s great living that #StartUpLife. And a short walk to various coffee shops isn't a bad gig either. 

5. Funding & Acceleprise: A Summer of Growing

PactSafe Closed $880,000 in Seed Funding this summer and also joined 3rd class of  San Francisco based Acceleprise—enterprise SaaS accelerator program. Throughout the program, team members attended seminars and met with mentors that have become invaluable to the PactSafe mission as we’ve progressed forward.

We are very thankful for the time we got to spend in SF, and the awesome connections we made with businesses both within and outside of our Acceleprise cohort.

6. The Launch of Vault

Not only did November bring the announcement of PactSafe securing $1.2M in total funding, but the good guys also launched Vault, our developer API toolkit built to help developers implement our documentation and add hours to their workload!  

7. A Fab Demo Day

Acceleprise, Cohort 3, went out with a bang as all 8 companies demoed their enterprise software for some of the top investors and advisors in the Bay Area. CEO Brian Powers showcased PactSafe and our excitement for improving the contracting process! It was the perfect way to close our chapter with Acceleprise.

8. Ain’t No Party like a PactSafe Party

Our official launch party, hosted at TWODeep Brewery, brought together our extended PactSafe team to celebrate the continued positive movement of our success and vision as we continue moving forward in the world of online contracts.

9. A TRUSTeD Partnership

TRUSTe and PactSafe’s partnership was announced on December 7 to help companies manage challenges of implementing Model Contract Clauses and remain compliant with EU data protection laws.

Our team attended EU Data Protection 2015, the premier event on the US West Coast to address the proposed changes in the Regulation and the business impact.

10. YOU: Our Awesome Supporters

This year especially has been filled with amazing enthusiasm and generosity from our industry, investors, influencers, colleagues, and family. PactSafe couldn’t be where we are today without this wealth of knowledge and support.

Thank you so much for your support of PactSafe! See you in 2016!
