Elevator Pitch:

A Web Whiteboard is “a touch-friendly online whiteboard app that lets you use your computer, tablet or smartphone to easily draw sketches, collaborate with others and share them with the world.”


Why It’s A Killer Startup:

To the outside world, the hoodie is probably the most potent visual symbol of startup culture. (Thanks again, Zuck.) However, those of on the inside know that there’s one item that truly represents startup life. It’s not the hoodie, it’s not even a MacBook covered in incubator stickers. It’s the whiteboard.


Walk into any accelerator, coworking space, or startup office and you are guaranteed to find a plethora of whiteboards. They’ll be covered in dry erase marker, spotted with post-its, and generally overused. My boyfriend, a startup founder, has even managed to buy a whiteboard for every one of our apartments over the past two years — and we’ve lived in six different countries in that time.


So the whiteboard holds a special place in the heart of startup founders and team members everywhere. But what do you do if — as is increasingly common — your team is spread out across the world? What if you don’t have a common office where you can all meet and brainstorm and sketch out ideas and write out code?


Introducing: A Web Whiteboard.


Perfect for remote teams especially, A Web Whiteboard lets you collaborate virtually the same way that you would IRL. It’s one more tool in the remote working toolbox, making it easier than ever before to work together, even when you’re far apart.


You don’t have to install it. It works on computer, tablets, and smartphones alike. It has built in text and voice chat options, so you can keep up with what each other is doing. And the highest cost to you is $50 a month, which includes up to 10 voice chat participants and 100 saved boards.
