Capstory, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based start up that operates an enhanced shared photo album, has launched with a $100k funding from CincyTech.
The company intends to use the capital, which is part of a larger seed funding, to finish the user interface, complete the mobile version and increase beta users through roll-outs at college campuses.
Co-founded by Suprasanna Mishra and Dustin Studer, Capstory operates as an enhanced shared photo album that allows friends to aggregate mobile-generated photos and text messages from multiple users into private “capsules” outside of social media.
Users who have access to the capsule can comment on each other’s pictures and memories – and if they choose, easily push chosen content to Facebook. However, if friends decide a weekend or event is out of context or inappropriate for everyone to view, they can keep the capsule private on Capstory.
