DragAroundMe is looking to make it easy for people to share large files online. The TechTown-based startup is creating software that will enable its users to share large documents in a more efficient manner.
"The idea is to simplify file-sharing ability," says Kum Wang, founder of DragAroundMe
Wang was inspired to start the company six months ago to help make it easier for college researchers to share large files. What makes DragAroundMe's technology unique is that its users can drag and drop its files in a place that will make them easily accessible to all of its users in the group and erase them after 24 hours unless the users designate them to remain.
"After 24 hours everything is gone," Wang says.
DragAroundMe has participated in TechTown's
accelerator programs this summer and is a semi-finalist in the Accelerate Michigan Innovation Competition
. The startup's team of five people is still developing the technology, Wang says its development is nearly complete, with an eye on the higher-education market.
