  • posted Hey everyone,

    I am currently at Startup Weekend working on a big idea and would love to hear your feedback.

    Our Startup: Enveloper

    What we do: we are on a mission to reinvent how people email.

    How we do it: we are currently building a web-based & mobile app that will have all standard features from Gmail + the awesomeness below:
    email collaboration: bring your team to contribute
    real-time editing feature: everyone in your group can see what you edit in a previous email in real-time
    improved filters
    one account, all your emails
    & much more

    How will this help you: Picture this: you work on a project and have information in several threads in gmail (if you are lucky and not yahoo) + a lot of files shared in Drive/Dropbox. Now, let's say you want to find a document, how easy will it be? We will bring Gmail + Drive in one place and we'll give you a platform to work on your projects. No more need to switch between accounts, tabs, create filters, etc.

    We are also allowing you to edit a previously sent email and your collaborators will see that in real-time. This will eliminate all those 10 emails you should have sent just to clarify an issue and will help you have your information more organized and easy to read.

    Attached is a sneak peak of how the app will look like (on all devices).

    We only have the landing page up for the BETA signup for now: http://signup.enveloper.co/ but i am more than happy to send you more info once they are up and running.

    What do you think about our idea? What is good? What we can improve? How we could market it? Any feedback is very valuable to us.
