A Canadian startup pitched the judges at the Google Demo Day 2016 in Mountain View, California this week, representing Montreal’s Notman House.
PACTA‘s Charlotte Rydlund pitched to the crowd about her startup’s service that turns contract management into a “smart” exercise. Ten other startups also pitched judges Steve Case, chairman at Revolution and Case Foundation, Frank Chen, a partner at Andreessen Horowitz, and Betty Chen, a partner at 500 Startups.
Halifax-based PACTA (representing Montreal’s Notman House) enables companies to keep track of their signed contracts on any device, across teams, departments and organizations. Teams can use the software to focus in on key words and key sections of contracts too.

Google for Entrepreneurs partners with ten tech hubs around North America, making up its North American Tech Hub Network.
