About Version Story

Version Story is building “Git meets Figma” for documents.

What would happen to your productivity if, tomorrow, you couldn't use Git? Instead, you need to email your updated source code to your colleagues each time you make a change. If someone on your team emails their changes before you do, you need to manually rebase.

Lawyers, scientists, journalists, and writers are just some of the professions that lack sophisticated collaboration software. Version Story is fixing that. We're creating a platform for professionals to seamlessly collaborate with each other in a way that integrates with their existing tools. Our platform combines the power of Git's branch-based version control with elegance of Figma's collaborative canvas UI.
