Who is behind Octonius?

Octonius Team is an international one. People with strong entrepreneurial pedigree and experts in cloud architecture and data privacy.

Cosmin Ciobanu (CEO and seasoned entrepreneur) and Cristian Ivan (COO and genius programmer, head of mobile platforms) are romanians, Chris H. Leeb (CVO and business angel) is austrian, Anoop K. Nayak (CTO – tech geek & coder, built a Mars Rover for NASA) is from India.

Which advantages will people have with Octonius?

The Octonius team has big mission: to solve the cloud fragmentation problem for businesses.

Octonius is a platform for cross cloud file sharing. It helps teams and professionals keep their work organized by providing a unique functionality: cross cloud file sharing. Simply put, using Octonius a team can work from Dropbox with another team that uses Google Drive.

When and why did you decide to start with your business?

The idea started when Cosmin (CEO and founder of Octonius) worked with Cristian (COO and cofounder) for a couple of years on multiple freelancing projects. They wanted to keep their work in one cloud, but each client was using a different cloud storage solution.

The team wanted to streamline and simplify the file sharing process, regardless of the cloud storage someone is using.

Current status

Octonius is now in the prestigious WAYRA accelerator. We have over 10 pilot customers in enterprise sector that will start generating revenue in spring 2016.
Current pilots include: General Electric, SAP, P&G, Telefonica Spain.

We are an official partner of Telefonica company and as soon as we complete the integration of their cloud services, they will start selling Octonius to their B2B customers.

Previous funding: $160K to build the product and initiate the b2b sales.
