About us

Our mission is to improve how we all collaborate with the outside world.  

Or, how do we streamline the way we work with our external parties—such as customers, investors, prospects, partners, or vendors?

Today, for many reasons, these external collaborations happen over email. But email was designed for messaging, not for collaborating on documents and files. Its deficiencies are why many of us spend hours a day administering multiple, complex streams of messages and attachments.

That’s why we created TakeTurns.

TakeTurns is a simple, transparent, and trustworthy app that can integrate seamlessly with everyone’s daily workflow and favorite applications.  You’ll spend less time wrangling your inbox and more time working. We hope it brings back a bit of sanity and joy into your working life.  And that the next time you get a TakeTurns invite, you’ll think: “Hey! These guys respect my time and value our collaboration.
