Recently I’ve been contacted by yet another entrepreneur, David Altschul. He is a co-founder of DivShare, a New York based company.
David says, “DivShare takes the approach that file hosting and sharing should be easier, faster, and can be done in style. Gone are download limitations, expiration dates, wait lines, pop-up ads, and clunky interfaces. In is a convenient way for anyone to host an unlimited number of files and easily share them with anyone at anytime. DivShare is still a young site and improvements are constantly being added to enhance the user experience and to make hosting, managing, and sharing files easier than ever. ”
Answers to Questions by David:
Where do you want to go with this? Have you had any other successful websites in the past?
We have big plans for DivShare. We’ll soon be introducing social networking features to the site, coupled with several big site upgrades. Best of all, everything we offer now will always remain free.
DivShare is a product of Diversion Web Publishing (www.divpub.com), a web development company, and creator of several highly successful in house web sites. DivShare has shifted to become a full time project, something we’re working on day and night to create the perfect user experience combined with a truly useful and practical service. It’s something we’re very passionate about.
When did you launch it?
DivShare launched on December 18th, 2006.
Who are your direct competitions?
DivShare has broad appeal, but some of our competitors include: yousendit.com, imageshack.us , xdrive.com, and ultimately sites like Flickr as we expand into the social networking universe.
Certainly has the potential to survive if they market it right. The site is designed very nicely and it will certainly retain users.
Good luck to you David.
