NotaryPro Raises $500K Seed Round as Canadian Legal Tech's First Online Notary Platform
The round, which closed in July 2022, was led by a California-based investment group. They see NotaryPro as a key player in the transformation of the notarial and legal industry by pioneering digital, remote-first notary and commissioning services.
With legal technology's $14B market expected to triple in size in the next 5 years (NASDAQ, 2022), NotaryPro is focused on expanding its technological capabilities to tap into this growing market. This investment will accelerate the refinement of its market-first online notarization platform, complete with a digital signing integration.
Founded in 2016 as a side-project by CEO Robert Onley, COVID-19 was a major catalyst for the company's rapid growth. The pandemic spurred a wave of new regulations allowing for online notarization and digital signing in each Canadian province. The team itself has also seen substantial growth, rapidly expanding to nine employees and more than 200 notary service providers across Canada in the last two years.
"We're beyond excited by the key investment from our US partners. We will continue fulfilling our mission to digitally democratize notary, legal, and paralegal services in Canada and beyond. Our commitment to innovation and exceptional customer service is what drives us to create affordable, user-centered legal technology solutions," said NotaryPro CEO Robert Onley.
In the last three years, NotaryPro has served more than 100,000 clients with in-person and online notarization services. The company is currently on track to expand its market share across Canada, North America, and the Commonwealth through high-impact sales and marketing initiatives for the remainder of 2022 and beginning of 2023.
NotaryPro, one of Canada's fastest growing legal tech start-ups, is the leading provider of online and in-person notary public and commissioner of oath services. Our notary discovery solution matches clients with in-person notaries in their community, and our online digital signing solutions offer clients a convenient, secure and superior notarization experience.
