The best place to save, organize and share the web
Clipboard wants to help you save and organize what you find on the web, and it’s accomplishing this goal by reinventing what it means to copy and paste.
On the surface, Clipboard looks like a lot of other save-and-share apps, such as Evernote, Clipmarks and Snip.it. However, founder Gary Flake says that his startup’s technology goes much deeper than other web saving and sharing solutions.
“We’re the only solution out there that has a real strong claim to being fast, interactive and lightweight,” Flake says.
Clipboard’s richness of clips makes it unique. While most copy-and-paste services either save only the text or basic structure of a website or article, Clipboard actually saves the original functionality and format of the items a user shares. If you decide to save a Wolfram Alpha page or a Facebook Post, Clipboard will retain its content, structure and even some of its functionality. You can check out an example from Wolfram Alpha and an Amazon.com clipping to see the technology in action.
Clipboard’s unique technology stems from the deep research of its founder. After getting his PhD., Flake became a research scientist in machine learning and data mining before he founded and ran Yahoo’s Research Lab. He eventually moved to Microsoft to run its Live Labs group, which produced products such as Photosynth and Pivot.
Flake hopes that Clipboard is just the start of a process to create a company focused around digital identity. “We’re slowly defining and redefining what it means to have a digital identity,” he says of Clipboard’s larger goals.
The company also boasts an all-star cast of investors. Clipboard has raised $1.4 million from Andreessen Horowitz, Index Ventures, Betaworks, SV Angel, First Round Capital, DFJ, CrunchFund, Founder’s Co-Op, CODE Advisors,Vast Ventures, Acequia Capital and angel investors Vivi Nevo, Blake Krikorian and Ted Meisel.
