5,000+ Companies



Stormboard was originally called Edistorm (a combination of Thomas Edison + Brainstorm) when it was founded, and then in 2013, when the company was selected to present on stage at Launch Festival in San Francisco, they rebranded to Stormboard (another mashup, this time Brainstorm + Whiteboard).

Our Mission and Vision



Our mission is to remove all barriers for turning ideas into actions leading to outcomes that will change the world.



We want a world where ideas have no physical limits, where blurry photos of whiteboards are no more, and where ideas are not only shared but transformed into reality. A world where ideas are built on as easily as they are created and where meeting to get from idea to action to outcome gets faster every day.
