Why Crocodoc?

Sharing and reviewing documents and presentations with others can be quite a pain. Crocodoc was built to change that, alleviating the need to email attachments back and forth, print and pass around hard copies, or install expensive collaboration software.

Crocodoc takes your PDFs, Word documents, and PowerPoint presentations, and lets you view and mark them up online. Documents can be shared with others, who can collaboratively highlight or strikeout text, add notes and comments, and make revisions. All files are stored securely on our servers, and can be password protected and encrypted for maximum security.

Who We Are

Crocodoc was founded by the same group of MIT entrepreneurs behind WebNotes, an acclaimed research management tool used by academics and professionals around the world to collect, organize, and share information online. We are based in Silicon Valley and Boston.

Crocodoc is funded by Y Combinator and other investors including Dave McClure, Joshua Schachter, Paul Buchheit, Steve Chen, and XG Ventures.

Meet the Team

Ryan Damico
Ryan's apartment is more sanitary than a Biosafety Level 4 research facility. This also shows in the products he designs. Ryan sharpened these skills during his undergrad years at MIT, and then subsequently as a Program Manager at Avid Technology. When anyone asks for "the force" behind Crocodoc, we point to Ryan.
Bennett Rogers
Bennett likes beer and poker. He wishes Ultimate Frisbee was an Olympic sport. Bennett acquired these tastes while pursuing his M.S. in computer science at Cambridge University. Upon his return to the states, he came to MIT for his PhD, but secretly hoped to drop out and do a startup. Which he did.
Peter Lai
Programmer by day, man who dresses in a rubber bat suit and jumps off buildings by night. Sound familiar? Besides his cavalier exploits, Peter is the only member of the team silly enough to have gotten two degrees from MIT: one in computer science and one in brain and cognitive science.
Matt Long
After graduating from MIT, Matt planned to leave Boston for California and never look back. Just a few months later, nostalgia and the realization that he wasn't quite ready for beautiful weather year-round brought him back. When he isn't busy hacking, you can probably find him at the nearest gym or enjoying a beer at the local pub.
