  • Dropbox
    Dropbox (s2007)Public • 4,000 employees • San Francisco, CA, USA
    Dropbox is building the world’s first smart workspace. Back in 2007, making work better for people meant designing a simpler way to keep files in sync. Today, it means designing products that reduce busywork so you can focus on the work that matters. Most “productivity tools” get in your way. They constantly ping, distract, and disrupt your team’s flow, so you spend your days switching between apps and tracking down feedback. It’s busywork, not the meaningful stuff. We want to change this. We believe there’s a more enlightened way to work. Dropbox helps people be organized, stay focused, and get in sync with their teams.

  • FollowUpThen
    FollowUpThen (s2017)Active • 1 employees • San Jose, CA, USA
    FollowUpThen is a personal assistant that sends you exactly what you need at exactly the right moment to get something done. Its uncanny timing is not the result of AI wizardry, but rather an explicit reminder syntax that is embedded in an email address. Email 1min@followupthen.com, 1hour@followupthen.com or {any-time}@followupthen.com and you'll get the email back at that time. Adding a reminder to any email is a one-second operation thanks to your email client's address autocomplete. Example use-cases include: * Following up with sales prospects * Maintaining relationships * Task delegation (put FollowUpThen in the bcc field) * Just-in-time reminders to get a task done (pay bills, etc) * Hitting inbox zero (forwarding emails to your future) In today's workplace we are bombarded with realtime demands on our attention. FollowUpThen answers this trend by making work more asynchronous, allowing you to place information in the future, giving you freedom and peace of mind in the present and allowing you actually get something done.

Keep track of how long you've been working, and when it's time to shift your attention to something else. When you're done, shut down for the day. Reflect on what you were able to accomplish. End the day feeling satisfied with what you could do rather than consumed by what you couldn't. Sunsama is built to improve your relationship with your work.

    Our mission is to make the web more collaborative. We're not just making collaboration faster—we're crafting it to be the best. Today we’re all using online platforms more than ever before - building, researching, learning, connecting etc. And we're not doing it alone. We're doing it together with other people and machines, turning the internet into the world's biggest team. Yet, the web was built for solo voyages. We saw a shift when platforms like Figma and Google Docs brought a multiplayer approach, breaking down walls and inspiring seamless teamwork. At Velt, we're taking it further. We're on a mission to infuse the magic of collaboration into the fabric of the web—one app at a time. We aim to erase the lines between online and offline co-working, crafting an environment where distance is irrelevant, and 'flow' is the norm. Right now, more than half of work hours are spent on coordination and communication—less on creating. With Velt, we're setting out to reverse these figures, reducing time spent on logistical issues by over 90%. Imagine what we can create when we spend less time talking about work and more time doing it! We're building a better web—a web for us, for our team, for everyone. Join us, and let's accelerate the future of web together 🚀 Our Products: - Velt Collaboration SDK (https://velt.dev/): JS SDK to add powerful collaboration experiences to your own product for your end-users. This helps you ship such experiences ridiculously fast, increase user growth and engagement. - Superflow (https://usesuperflow.com/): JS plugin to enable product, marketing and design teams to comment and collaborate directly on their websites. This helps them iterate and ship their products 10x faster. We’re a team of ex-Googlers. We've launched products like Augmented Reality in Google Search & Maps. Come build a better web with us 🚀

    We help B2B companies reduce churn and grow customer spending. Our product gives account managers access to data dashboards and priority checklists needed to proactively save customers and upsell them to more profitable products. Most companies have all the data they need to figure this out, but it’s often locked away in 20 different systems. There is no central place for an account manager to easily prioritize which customers to focus on and what actions to take to help them. Workbase is the solution, by one-click integrating the data sources and customizing the interface and actions for each company. When working on similar internal tools at companies like Segment, we saw first-hand that proactively managing the customer journey could increase net retained revenue by as much as 20 percent.

Most people spend the majority of their waking hours at work, and way too many of those hours in unproductive meetings. Your work life is a big portion of your life -- and the happier and more productive you are at work, the more fulfilled and energized you are in your life. Better Work = Better Life.
