Based in San Francisco, CA and founded in 2012, Ink (formerly Filepicker.io) has raised $1.8 million in seed funding from lead investors Andreessen Horowitz and Highland Capital Partners.

Connect, store, and process any file from anywhere on the Internet.
Ink acts as an abstraction layer, offering a simple, elegant api to connect your application to all the third-party services your users love. When you request a file to import into you application, the Ink file picker guides the user through selecting a file, authenticating any necessary third-party services. Once the user chooses a file, we create a unique URL that acts as a pointer to that specific file and pass it to your application, allowing you to read from and write to the file.
