Springpad, a Boston, MA-based provider of a note-taking application, will be shutting down on June 25th.
According to a post on their blog, they were not able to secure additional funding or scale to become a self-sustaining business. As part of closing, a portion of the team of the company is joining Google.
Led by Jacqueline Hampton, CEO, Jeff Chow, CPO, Jeff Janer, VP Biz Dev, Springpad is a VC-backed tool that allows users to create digital notebooks for all kinds of projects and interests, which they can fill with tasks, notes, checklists, products, bookmarks, photos, places and other data types.
The company has released an export tool that gives users some options to migrate to other services (here).
