Rocketbook and Think Board Launch Kickstarter Campaign to Create the Think Board X
The Boston-based startups are teaming up to integrate Think Board’s latest peel and stick whiteboard with Rocketbook’s image capturing, cloud connected app.
BOSTON, September 10, 2018 — Rocketbook, creators of the best-selling, reusable, cloud-connected notebooks, and Think Board, makers of the peel and stick whiteboard, today launched their collaborative “Think Board X – Powered by Rocketbook” Kickstarter campaign. The two Boston-based companies worked together to create a peel and stick whiteboard built for the digital age to boost collaboration and make idea sharing easier than ever. The campaign, running from September 10 through September 30, 2018, hopes to raise $21,500.
Think Board X combines Think Board’s flagship whiteboard film product with Rocketbook’s patent-pending, image-capturing technology, enabling users to scan the whiteboard and upload the notes to the Rocketbook app. Through the app, users are able to instantly send the scan to any of their favorite cloud services, including Google Drive, Dropbox, Evernote and more. The Rocketbook app’s new optical character recognition (OCR) features work with the Think Board X, including Email Transcription, Smart Titles and Smart Search, optimizing user experience. Once the notes have been saved and sent to their destination, the whiteboard can be wiped clean to start over.
Jake Epstein, Co-Founder of Rocketbook, said: “After completing five immensely successful crowdfunding campaigns totaling over $6 million to provide our users with futuristic note-taking options, we decided partnering with Think Board was just what our users needed to spark creativity and increase collaboration. Whether in the classroom or a boardroom, Think Board X’s seamless integration with the Rocketbook app will expand the functionality and flexibility that Rocketbook users already enjoy.”
Hanson Grant, Founder and CEO of Think Board, said: “Think Board enables employees, teachers and students to design, take notes and brainstorm anywhere they stick their Think Board. We’re thrilled to partner with Rocketbook to now encourage our users to store and share their discoveries within their preferred cloud-connected apps. This innovative integration is bringing flexibility, simplicity and organization together to inspire big thinkers to share their creations and blossom new ideas.”
Rocketbook’s most recent crowdfunding campaign raised over $380K in under 30 days and the company has successfully handled multiple campaigns in the past resulting in over $6 million raised total.

Rocketbook started with a simple idea: to allow people who love low-tech pen and paper to keep up with all of the high-tech organizational technology of today. Rocketbook’s mission is to help others get ideas out of their heads and collaborate. The Rocketbook Everlast, Rocketbook Everlast Mini, Rocketbook Wave, and Rocketbook Color, were all created to bring the best of both worlds together and make the integration of pen and paper with technology as easy as possible.
