Fetchnotes And Box Bring 25 Gigs Of Free Storage To The People

By August 28, 2012

This week simple note taking startup Fetchnotes announced that its users can net 25 gigs of free storage from cloud service Box by simply signing up through the app’s website. The partnership will allow Fetchnotes users to not only back up their notes within the cloud but also attach files, ensuring that they will be able to access all of their most important information from wherever they might be.

Users signing up through Fetchnotes will be saving $10 each month, as Box’s current free plan is capped at 5 GB. In addition to saving themselves a little cash, users will also have the opportunity to extend the deal to their friends. Fetchnotes recommends that you take advantage of this charitable opportunity to win over your boss or perhaps impress that special someone in your life. In order to get access to the free 25 GB of cloud storage, users will have to click the “sign up now” link in the settings of their existing Fetchnotes account.

Originally based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, Fetchnotes has moved to Boston this month to participate in the city’s Fall 2012 TechStars class. “TechStars in particular is well-suited for companies at our stage,” the Fetchnotes team wrote. “We’ll be able to navigate their incredible mentor network with a live product with traction, not just a concept.” Founders Alex Schiff and Chase Lee have taken a leave of absence from their studies at the University of Michigan in order to participate in the three month long program.

Just last month Box finished an investment round of $125 million led by General Atlantic. The cloud storage company said it plans to use the funds to beef up the landscape of the $280 billion dollar a year enterprise industry.

It might be that Box is planning to simply make the 25 gig option free for all users in the near future, since the deal through Fetchnotes is available to nearly anyone willing to take the few minutes to register. Either way, 25 GB of online storage is nothing to shake a stick at, so no more excuses if you’re still on the hunt for the perfect online locker.
