Dropbox has transformed the way our entire industry exchanges data. Groupiter equips us to handle the huge volume of feedback we require on our artwork and represents the best method for our artists to communicate, collaborate and review.
I was their UX mentor at 500 Startups and continue to be impressed with their dynamic, motivated team. Groupiter's objective - to add a conversation layer on top of dropbox - is one which solves a real problem for millions of dropbox users who are drowning in file management overload.
Adding conversation to file allows teams to create context around a file. I've had numerous occasions where someone throws a file into a dropbox and I have no idea what or why I'm looking at this. Goupiter has a chance to fix this confusion and reduced the clutter of email messages back and forth.
I've worked with Groupiter's founder, Chris, at another startup and have witnessed firsthand his doggedness and resourcefulness move dials in ways no mere mortal could do. He's open to new ideas and is constantly expanding his network and horizons to ensure the success of whatever he relentlessly pursues. He's an inspiration to watch; any company in his hands will not be let down.
