Turn any file into web content and publish to millions or share with just one person
COPENHAGEN, 25 January 2011 – Danish start-up Ge.tt, an online browser-based file publishing and sharing service, today launches its new tool that makes sharing all types of materials quick and easy.
Ge.tt lets users turn any type of file, no matter how large, into web content and publish it in seconds within a browser or email. Users can also share files with one person or several, with just one click. Suitable for personal and professional use, Ge.tt requires no special tools, software or plug-ins to view photos, listen to music, watch video and read any type of document. Real-time statistics also let users track downloads.
“Ge.tt is a simple, real-time file publishing and sharing tool that anyone can use without any complicated software installations or wait time for files to upload,” said Tobias Baunbæk, co-founder and CEO, Ge.tt. “We see huge potential to develop Ge.tt with premium and professional account options for users who need to share and access large files on any device and in real-time.”
A beta version of the service went viral in November 2010 and grew to 10,000 signups immediately, which was especially significant for a service that does not require a signup. Hundreds of thousands of files have been shared since with more than 3 million downloads.
“What differentiates Ge.tt from other technology start-ups is that early on they saw the importance of backing their technology development with a strong business foundation and seeking guidance from advisors,” said Arne Winther, advisor and investor, Ge.tt. “This forethought has given Ge.tt the potential to grow from instant, real-time file sharing to a professional content publishing and distribution service.”
The company will launch paid premium and professional services in the first quarter of 2011. Ge.tt Premium and Ge.tt Professional will offer high quality video and audio sharing capabilities, advanced storage options and statistics tools. Ge.tt’s free service offering is ad funded.
