Our co-founders Sangwon and Hyun were both strategy consultants. With each new project, onboarding was a hassle.
Both were traveling for work and grabbed dinner at a hotel lobby when Sangwon mentioned how difficult it was to start a new project: reading through multiple file versions and e-mails, and reconciling the two.
He sparked the idea of a retaining version history and team communication in one tool, and Hyun immediately caught on. By their 2nd drink, FileThread was born.
