It's like gmail for snailmail.

Tell us about your business.

While sitting up at the front desk of my business center I observed how people interacted with their postal mail. When they were expecting a check in the mail they would come in 4x a day to see if it had come in. I guess that is why they call it "checking" for mail. So I offered to notify them via email when their mail came in. But that would overload their email inbox, so I created MailGapp. Now you can track and manage all your postal mail right from the palm of your hand.

What makes your business stand out?

We are imagining the mailbox. Redefining offsite mail retrieval. And reinventing the Office as a Service.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Just remember to breathe.
