Yep, about what we expected.
Essentially after meeting client after client, the same story rings true over and over, that we spend most of our time in contract negotiation limbo.
And most of that time is actually internal confusion around what is important to whom, which department group for each contract. Or confusion for what 'did we do last time'?.
Most companies struggle with finding ways to push more to their front line sales group.
It is our mission help solve that!
Happy 4th of July from your friends at Agreemint!
May you all have some yummy barbequed corn on the cob with your friends and family.
Embraced in our country spirit early on, this year we toast to that wonderful spirit of entrepreneurialism.
A toast to you all who continue to root for us along the way!
The tasty results are in! After six months of commercial use on the platform, Agreemint customers are witnessing mind-blowing results. Before the use of Agreemint, a normal close time for a standard common contract was 5-6 weeks in these same accounts. After Agreemint deployed, it is at now averaging less than 36 hours! Other results below.
The goal of course: to simply and ease how you set up a contract with anyone.
We can. And doing.
We just wrapped a first long week of investor meetings (continues in next week as well). This is when we go out and walk through our plans with various early stage VC investors, mostly here in Silicon Valley. And why? This is for Agreemint to update core software faster and deliver on major enterprise level advancements on the platform.
To our humble surprise the appetite from the investor community for Agreemint is very well received - with over 40 VC meetings and counting! We are certainly enjoying that attention as those same investors could certainly use Agreemint and likely with their own portfolio of companies.
Needless to say, a healthy round is shaping up.
So we will update you when continue on that front which should help in speeding things along.
Will update more towards the end of the month!
Lock in! Way cool advancements on the way.
While certainly excited that Agreemint 1.x in use and getting great results, Agreemint 2.x is huge step forward and a game changer for the entire market!
We are heads down on this 2.x release - coming very soon.
Agreemint 2.x is what our customers unanimously want, works with any document flow, any document, and can integrate with any signing or generation template.
For right now, Agreemint 2.x is under vetted user trials. If you qualify we can also show you the product as well!
In meantime, stay tuned.

Well, here is the quick story.
When we started our company we liked the name Agreemint, as did our target customers - lots of fun and clever things we can do with that name. However, someone had it and wanted a healthy portion of money for it even though there was no company launch or product coming from that .com domain. We declined to pay. Better to spend money on building a great product we felt.
Well, through some patience and diligence, we managed to get the .com domain after all for a much better price.
Users can still use our .io, but .com is our default from this point.
Thanks for all the continued support!

Hired first attorney !
All looking very minty we must say :)
Now we need a clever tagline. Something like 'always dot the 'i' in your Agreemint' could work :)
To friends and colleagues:Today marks a big day for our startup (Agreemint.io). We are super proud to announce the addition of San Francisco based Christopher Boyce as full-time CTO.
Chris Boyce will be chartered to build on the momentum of early private Beta access trials through the building out of operations, team appointments and technology robustness, gearing up for a commercial deployment release (version 1.x) target in summer 2018.
Chris will be accelerating Agreemints AI capabilities, administration user features, additional contract uses, and third party integration capabilities.
Before Agreemint, Chris spent many years honing his skills in application development through his tenure at Mocana and Sonic.net Chris earned in MS in Computer Science from University of San Francisco, with a BS of Computer Science from San Francisco State.
We look forward to working with Chris!. And perhaps sharing a Cacao Soylent over Lunch too ( "the lunch of champions").
Where is that contract? We all know the drill. "Stuck in legal" is too often the response.
Throughout my career as a technology executive I found myself frequently frustrated by the legal costs we incurred throughout basic contract negotiations. The whole process, all of the back and forth, kept us from being agile and efficient in conducting business.
I realized I wasn't alone in my frustration.
Many others have experienced the same, being at a Fortune 500 company or as a solo preneuer. The problem is so common that while most feel defeated by it, they've come to accept it as status quo - just how business operates. I thought to myself, there has to be a better way.
We sought a solution that was approachable and created a novel way that simplifies the execution of basic legal agreements.
