EverNote, a startup founded by Stepan Pachikov, is about to announce that it has raised $6 million in a series A funding and has added Esther Dyson and Max Levchin, founder of PayPal and Slide, to its board. The money came from equity investment firm J.F. Mackie & Company, and will help EverNote continue to build its software that CEO Tom Garland calls “a photographic memory for everyone.” The funding is likely to be announced next week.
Evernote is a note-taking application – that allows you to notes, clip websites and other such random stuff.
The current version of the company’s technology is a desktop application that enables users to capture information through a button on a web browser, or through Outlook. The company sells a premium version of the product for $35 a copy. Mac users already have access to many similar applications such as Aquaminds’ Notetaker, Yojimbo and StickyBrain.
The company plans to launch future versions of the software over the coming months, which will include mobile and web access. Camera phones could be the real key to the usefulness of the application. But alas, while the desktop version is available now, it’s just for Windows PC.
