Allowed users to store and collaborate on design work
LayerVault’s idea was to build a high-growth business in the design industry. The app helped you store, track, review, and deliver design work. The platform also gave its subscribers unlimited file storage and real-time updates and it had a companion iOS app. It built some good technology that explored new ideas and addressed a common need (pain) in the design community.
According to Kelly Sutton, LayerVault’s CEO,
the company was facing financial challenges. As a result, they exhausted their
existing capital reserves and were unable to secure additional capital to

become the go-to destination for version control.
