Let’s meet Startup, Buttons:
In a few sentences, tell us what your start-up is all about!:
Buttons is a bookmarking tool that introduces innovative ways to save your favourite websites and collaborate with others. It helps you keep your personal bookmarks organised, uncluttered and safe.
Webmarks – Never lose another website.
Transform your bookmarks into webmarks, sort them into groups, add notes, and assign tags. Searching for your bookmarks has never been easier. All your webmarks are stored securely on the cloud, so they are always available, anywhere you are.
Buttons – Do more with your webmarks.
View your bookmarks like you’ve never seen them before! Add webmarks to a button for quick access and to enable the sharing features. You can send multiple websites to anyone by creating one link to a button.
Share Buttons – A new way to collaborate.
Experience a simple, organised way to share and save websites with your family, friends and colleagues. Use shared buttons instead of sending multiple links by chat or email. Add, edit or remove webmarks and receive live updates when someone makes any changes.
Import your existing bookmarks.
Transfer all your browser bookmarks from your computer to your Buttons account using the Import tool. To keep the transition organised, the website descriptions are fetched automatically and any broken links and duplicate bookmarks will be highlighted. You can then browse through all the imported bookmarks and choose which folders and websites you want to save.
Privacy – Keep your bookmarks safe.
Buttons is a web application. This means that all your webmarks and buttons are stored on the cloud, and can be accessed from anywhere you are by signing into your account. If you use a shared computer, you will have personal access to your bookmarks with no one snooping around.
Experience a new and exciting way to browse your bookmarks!
When was your startup founded? And what stage is your startup currently at?:
June 1, 2015
Who are your competitors? And what is your start-up’s competitive advantage over them?:
Most of our competitors focus heavily on social bookmarking. Buttons focuses on organising and storing your personal bookmarks. The sharing features that it offers are private and managed by you.
The user is at the centre of our product. With Buttons, we did not only focus on creating innovative features, but we also gave great importance to the application design and to creating an immersive user experience.
Let us know a bit about your team, who are the key team members and what is their role?:
Arnold: Co-founder, content strategist, design and marketing.
I love the outdoors with a passion for motorbikes and adventure. I studied Philosophy and have a Masters degree in Psychology with work experience in business and education. I am an experienced graphics designer and with keen focus on the practical aspects and usability of our projects.
Owen: Co-founder, design and development.
I am an artistic person with a flair for creativity, passion for music, and a travel addict. I studied computer and software engineering, and I have over seven years of experience with various types of programming languages. I have an eye for detail and strive for perfection in everything I do.
Finally, do you have any other comments or information about your product that you would like to add?:
The web has become a major part of our lives. Music, movies, food, shopping, travel arrangements, research for work or school projects. We find all of this and much more online. Yet the way we currently organise, save and share websites is very scattered and unorganised.
This was our initial inspiration for creating Buttons, a web application that will change the way you bookmark and share the web.
