I haven’t been sleeping very much for the past few weeks, but I’m certainly not complaining. These are very exciting times in Dashlane’s trajectory. We went from private beta to public release last Monday, April 16, and since then we’ve been really pushing forward on everything from every angle. Here are some key Dashlane updates:
- TechCrunch interviewed Dashlane’s original visionary and seed investor, Bernard Liautaud, in a detailed feature write-up: Dashlane Speeds Up The Web With Instant Logins, Automatic Checkout And More
- BetaBeat‘s Kelly Faircloth wrote about our coming-out from a different angle, emphasizing Dashlane’s commitment to personal data privacy for our users
- Alan Henry at Lifehacker followed up on his review of our beta product with a great post on Dashlane’s new features
- We were psyched to read Neil J. Rubenking’s incredibly detailed review of Dashlane in PCMag, where he wrote: “If I had to describe the new Dashlane (free) password manager in a single word, I’d call it elegant… It also boasts features you just won’t find in the competition.” Plus! He awarded our very first public release with the esteemed PCMag Editors’ Choice Award in the password management category.
- Our CEO Emmanuel Schalit blogged for the Huffington Post on why Dashlane chose Silicon Alley over Silicon Valley — and New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg retweeted us, no big deal:
- On that note, yours truly wrote a post for NYTechDay on why I think New York is the best place for tech start-ups right now
- The Dashlane team was on-hand at the NYTechDay event on Thursday last week to demo our product, celebrate our launch, and meet others in the local tech start-up scene; check out our photos from the event
- Fittingly, after everything we’ve been through recently, our CEO wrote a piece for Forbes about seven lessons we learned by releasing Dashlane publicly, a solid read for all entrepreneurs out there
- And finally, yesterday we launched our Board of Users, a way to involve our power-users more directly in the development pipeline and other key decisions we’ll be making as we grow Dashlane. (By the way, if you want to join, send us an email at community [at] dashlane [dot] com!)
And we’re off!
