Three friends, including a 17-year-old high schooler, who met at New Work City, a co-working space, built Dispach.io to solve the problem of disperse information. The product, as it exists currently, is a Chrome extension that allows you to grab Word files and PDFs and automatically place them into Google Docs or Dropbox. Future iterations, probably available in the next month, should support more filetypes and more organizational systems.
The 17-year-old is Alex Godin and the two other fellows started Airdropper. Together they created Dispatch.io to solve problems with file sharing.
Watch this space for more from this cold-soup-sounding start-up but the guys are pretty excited about the product and from what I saw – dead simple file grabs from web pages using a smooth and simple interface – this looks to be an interesting product.
Here’s their Hackathon presentation.
