Nat du Preez, CEO and Cofounder of Bunchcut
Duprez’s vision for Bunchcut was a clean, user-friendly image collaboration platform for advertising and marketing agencies. While Bunchcut looks similar to Pinterest, its function is completely different: whereas Pinterest is a content discovery platform, Bunchcut is meant for businesses, so users spend much less time on the site. By uploading images to a dashboard either directly from one’s computer, via the Internet or Dropbox (which is synced to the site), users can easily share photos that are being considered for marketing and advertising campaigns. Collaborators can then vote on their favorite images, thereby streamlining the photo-selection process within a company. Once photos have been selected, they can be downloaded in high-resolution quality, either individually or in bulk, as a board. The first two boards are free, and then users can select various price points starting at $15/month. Bunchcut came out of ER Accelerator.
