Email is one of the few things in tech that has withstood the test of time. It’s also a good example of “die a hero or live long enough to become the villain.” Not many things in life are as annoying as spammy, unwanted email. These makers are working on a solution to clean up your inbox for a good cause.
Gated helps keep your inbox free from unwanted and spammy emails. Each time you get an email from an unknown address, that sender is challenged to donate ($2 minimum) to your chosen nonprofit in order to deliver their message.
Maker and CEO of Gated, Andy Mowat, was previously building sales and marketing engines at companies like Upwork and Box. “My teams have sent billions of emails and caused a lot of pain,” he admits. The idea of decluttering your inbox is not necessarily novel though. “[It] has definitely been tried before and I have studied every attempt (we even have some of the folks who tried before as investors). Our approach isn’t about locking down your inbox but reducing the noise to help everyone,” he adds.
If you already have a handle on your inbox but want more ways to up your email game, we’ve seen a few interesting launches recently.
