Before building Stockpress, the founding team ran a successful digital development agency for 12 years and was continuously frustrated by having to use a combination of platforms to collaborate on files with freelancers and clients.
An opportunity to work with a large sports media organization introduced us to Digital Asset Management (DAM) and opened our eyes to the capabilities of this enterprise technology – but also highlighted its complexities.
DAM features were what was missing from the file management platforms we were using, but the cost of switching was out of reach. In 2018 we purposefully set out to build the tool we were missing.
Stockpress started out as an internal tool for our team but was soon adopted by our clients. At that point, we knew we were on to something! In 2022, we went full-time with Stockpress thanks to funding from Stage 2 Capital, Alumni Ventures, and Deftly Ventures.
