We compiled our insights about our near term priorities from over 60 user onboarding calls and over 1000 survey data responses into a research report.
Our users can now support us with a $150 Pioneer plan that gives them $240 in credits as soon as the multi-device sync and our new pricing model of $6 and $10 launch to all our users.
We've built the first internal prototype of the sync.
You can now collaboratively annotate and discuss web-based PDFs
Raising another 40k from Peter Wang, CEO of Anaconda
Peter has been one of our first investors and now put more money into Memex. We're happy to have him as a partner and advisor on this journey.
We started working on making Memex a cloud-first product with offline-support. This will enable automated backups and multi-device sync, our most requested feature and key to becoming a scalable and profitable product.
First prototype expected within the next month.
Historically Memex was way too inexpensive with only $3.5 per month. By developing our research report it became clear that our initial target group is people that spend between $50-200 on their knowledge tools and are power users. With the launch of the cloud-first infrastructure and further improvements on the collaboration workflows, we will increase the price to $10/month.
We've been in touch with the EA infrastructure fund and they expressed interest in funding the collaborative online research tool we are developing, Memex (more below).
Before we apply we would like to talk to researchers in the EA community about their top priorities for such a tool, so that EAIF funds developments that have the most impact on the community's work.
If you are one, or know someone, we'd love to have a 20min chat with you. You can find a time here
