In 2011 Ricardo Ferrer Rivero started working closely with Sascha Reuter and tape.io GmbH (doctape) with the goal of revolutionising the way everyone works, consumes & organizes files. In 2012, 533 AG gathered the funds necessary to fuel this vision, made a pre-seed investment and got the company on its feet allowing it to keep on developing the product for a year before the first seed investment.
Today we are happy to announce that doctape has been acquired by Atlassian, owner of the best team collaboration tools currently available. With the deal, the complete team moved to Sydney, Australia to help bring doctape's advanced file management and conversion technology to Atlassian's other products.
Current 533 stockholders will soon be receiving an invitation to a stockholder meeting in order to discuss the details and decide on the utilisation of the proceeds coming from the deal.
We would like to thank the doctape team for doing an amazing job and all our Stockholders for believing in the project and supporting it with their investment. We wish the doctapers an great time on the rest of this incredible journey.
