Our Company & Team Overview:

MIT Media Lab product designer Jacob Cole, YC founder David Greenspan (Etherpad, Google, Meteor.js), and other veteran entrepreneurs have teamed up to build Ideaflow – a notebook that augments your intelligence as you type. Our product enables users to seamlessly capture and stitch together fragments of information, amplifying their ability to solve critical problems.

Ray Kurzweil projects that, by 2045, humanity will be hooked up to a "shared neocortex in the cloud" by brain-computer interfaces. We will leave the brain-computer interfaces to Elon Musk, but we believe it’s possible to build that "shared brain" now, and that it might look different than many imagine. We want to create a future where nobody feels alone with their ideas, where intellectual soulmates find each other, where superconnectors are empowered. We see our software as critical to creating the frame for humans and machines to work together to solve the world's most important problems. 

With a raise of $10 million, the backing of prominent thought leaders in the field - like First Round Capital, 8VC, Sequoia Scouts, and Naval Ravikant - and a successful paid pilot for large enterprise clients, we are ready to take on these challenges. We are looking for fearlessly creative individuals who can fall in love with personal information management systems, which we see as integral to the destiny of the Web.
