Austin, Texas based tech startup Jumpshot came out of stealth mode this week, launching on the popular crowd funding site Kickstarter. The company is developing a fully automated solution for solving PC frustration in a simple and fun way for consumers. Jumpshot was founded by David Endler and Pedram Amini, two former security research managers in HP's TippingPoint division.
Jumpshot was designed for a variety of situations:

Jumpshot sets itself apart in three major ways:
"We left our day jobs and created Jumpshot for a totally selfish reason." said co-founder David Endler, "We were exhausted being PC tech consultants to our family and friends. Don’t get us wrong, we love to help. But we knew there had to be a better more enjoyable way to assist them. We truly wanted to build something that passed the Grandma test, a product we were proud to leave behind that also wouldn’t impact the quality of our holiday gifts."
"We decided to launch Jumpshot on Kickstarter for a couple of reasons." said co-founder Pedram Amini. "We're a scrappy self-funded startup and we've gone pretty far on our own. Our dream is to leverage the momentum and cash from our backers to truly 'kick start' Jumpshot into a viable standalone product. The money will feed directly into USB manufacturing, advancing the Jumpshot engine and driving future improvements. We also appreciate the fact that crowd funding will transform Jumpshot into a better product by listening to the feedback of our early adopters".
