Founder, CEO and serial entrepreneur, John Fearon, started Dropmysite Pte Ltd in September 2011 with the aim to backup the Intenet. Dropmysite Pte Ltd is John's 2nd digital/cloud start-up in two years, his first was EatAds, an outdoor advertising platform. The inspiration for the backup business arose from the aftermath of a business disaster. At EatAds, an unexpected server crash wiped out vital data from the website. This detrimental situation put John in an awkward position of having to face the music from unhappy clients, where many walked away.
However, John turned this adversity into an opportunity. He realized that server crashes are common occurances and yet there were no adequate preventive measures or solutions. Seeing the potential market for this, John created an easy website backup service, Dropmysite. Webmasters everywhere now have an unprecedented tool to backup websites and databases to prevent data loss.
In no time, Dropmysite started seeing traction in user signups and online reviews. As with all startups, John needed significant investment and publicity to go further. John and Dropmysite were then cast in “Angels Gate” Season 1, a reality TV show on ChannelNewsAsia, where entrepreneurs pitch venture capitalists for investments. After a few nervy commercial breaks, John pulled through to secure a first round seed funding of $250,000 SGD.
Realizing the immensity of the email market, John created a straightforward email backup service, Dropmyemail. Now all across the world, users of email have a simple and elegant email backup solution in the cloud. In 50 days, the product gained 525,000 users and Amazon Web Services awarded the Featured Startup of Asia Pacific to Dropmysite.
In 2013, Dropmysite was voted among the Top 20 Hottest Startups by Singapore Business Review. To take the company to the next level, Charif El-Ansari (ex-Head of Business Development at Google) was installed as the CEO while John stayed on as the Chairman.
