About Synth

Synth is building a second brain for knowledge workers.

Your colleague told you about this awesome idea, you came across an amazing article but were too meh to read it, there was an important whatsapp conversation that you felt you could just always remember it. Well your personal information is scattered all around on the internet and on different apps. Where is that relevant piece of information when you need it the most, you check your various apps, search your browsing history, your downloads folder, sighs, you can't find it.

Well our brain was never meant for storing so much information and more so remembering it.

Hence, we are building an app that captures and summarizes all the relevant information you consume - text, audio, video in 1-click. The app makes it easy to search and retrieve the information you want, wherever you like. Our vision is to augment human intelligence for seamless understanding and recall of any information, to make fast decisions and is driven by the ideas of pioneers in computing. We call it the mind for the mind.

Our product is in private beta right now and was among Top5 Products of the Day on Product Hunt

and we are backed by Y Combinator.

Our spirit of doing things is the hacker way -
