Dropmyemail’s CEO and founder, John Fearon, will be an authority on rapid scaling of startups at Echelon 2012. After all, his email backup cloud service added 630,000 users within 50 days, growing faster than Twitter, Pinterest and Fab.com at a similar stage.
Echelon 2012 is Asia’s leading startup event and will focus on enabling all the factors required for the rapid growth of technology ventures. Fearon will be speaking to delegates and attendees on how he achieved his amazing startup scalability.
Dropmyemail.com, the most comprehensive service that back up email and migrate email (and contacts, calendars and chat) automatically. The company began the freemium service on 1st March 2012. Within days, the coveted hockey stick growth kicked in; the company has been adding close to 15,000 new users per day since.
Fearon commented “We are on track to hit one million users within three months, And we think we can grow even faster. There are an estimated 3.4 billion emails in the world today; 75% are consumer, not business emails. Our aim is to back-up the Internet, so we have lots of work to do.”
Speaking at the same event alongside Fearon will be other esteemed guests who are well versed on the subject of scaling up technology companies and cloud computing. One in particular is Simone Brunozzi, Amazon Web Services’ Technology Evangelist for Asia Pacific (APAC).
Dropmyemail is closely working with Amazon Web Services. Dropmyemail uses Amazon Web Service’s Simple Storage Service (S3), which is a secure data storage solution, to store all email backups. Fearon and Brunozzi will have plenty to share on how their companies collaborate to results in success for Dropmyemail and Amazon, in turn, has made Dropmyemail their featured startup in Asia Pacific.
Fearon will be discussing many important and intriguing topics ranging from founders role at different stages to key challenges for tech entrepreneurs. As the expert in this field, he will be able to bring his unique experiences as a life-long entrepreneur to the table.
In 33 years, Fearon went from winning an award selling sweets as a child, to running multi-million dollar global digital marketing campaigns, to founding Dropmyemail. This business is his third digital/cloud start-up in two years. His first was EatAds, an outdoor advertising platform. His second was Dropmysite, a cloud service to back up websites.
Dropmyemail has proven itself with its great traction and virality to back up email and migrate email, especially in Asia, with 40% of its user base coming from India and Jakarta. With such a huge information technology community and tech savvy population in Asia, it is easy to see why so many people have signed up for Dropmyemail’s freemium service. To help accelerate that growth, Fearon has also just opened the Dropmyemail Mumbai office to service its massive Indian user base.
With offices in Singapore, Buenos Aires and Mumbai, Fearon will also be looking to position Dropmyemail in the right space to find partners throughout the world. Dropmyemail will be looking for telecommunication companies, Internet Service Providers, hosting companies and other online distribution channels / networks.
