3. Droplr


Founded: 2013

“Droplr is effortless visual collaboration for creative teams. While industry incumbents are mired in folder-based architecture, email attachments, FTP, or ad-hoc hacks, Droplr is changing the industry though its simple, secure platform: in one single step Droplr converts any file into a URL that can be sent via any communication platform. Droplr is focused on being deeply integrated into the tools that creative teams use.

Currently the creative design process if full of inefficiencies. Graphic designers, UI/UX designers, developers, and consultants all run into walls in the creative process. Some of these walls are: 1) File formats and compatibility across devices 2) Remote teams 3) Collaboration and Feedback is out of context 4) there is a lack of workflow integration 5) the file transfer process for visual assets is slow and clumsy.”
