17 year old Swede launches Instagram for Business

    What are they putting in Swedish school lunches these days? A few months ago we wrote about 17 year old Joel Hellermark’s video-sharing startup, Sample, and now we hear that 17 year old Swede David Gabor launched his own social photo-sharing app, targeting small businesses of all places. His product, called TeamPics, creates a private Instagram for your workplace allowing you to share funny office moments, idea sketches, or whatever else you want to quickly snap and share with your team

    How it works is that you log into the app with your work email address, creating a team under that domain. It’s then as simple as snapping pics, adding a caption, and then browsing the feed. According to the company, they’ve already hit a good subset of Swedish startups as initial users counting companies like Bloglovin, Tictail, Spotify, Narrative and Dots and others.

    Gabor has friends in high places, the idea behind TeamPics came from a Skype call with Bloglovin cofounder Mattias Swenson where they were talking about how difficult it is to share pictures with your colleagues.

    “We thought it was absurd that it was still difficult to share images with your colleagues. Many teams use email or text messages, but that’s far more complicated than how we share images in our personal lives,” says founder David Gabor.

    The company was founded only in July of 2014 and is currently targeting startups and small companies.

    It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s perfect for those inside moments only your colleagues would understand. The downside to the app is that it is currently only for iPhone. For companies with a mix of iPhones, Androids, and Windows Phones, TeamPics won’t bring the whole office together, but you Apple friendly offices can give it a download to start sharing goofy moments and provide some feedback to the app, so that hopefully it will be brought to other platforms.

    Teampics can be found on the App Store, here.
