Company History: We're a small company of just over 40 employees, the majority of whom are based in Silicon Valley, where we started. We also have employees in Japan and Europe, helping ensure customers around the globe have access to the product that they love. Our founders are a unique combination of childhood friendships, college roommates and friends at a first job out of college. They opened the first office in an old paint factory in an industrial part of South San Francisco. With similar backgrounds in networking and super computers, they felt too far away from the consumer experience and decided to embark upon a start-up centered on a passion for photography. Though we're small, we started the company with a commitment to customer service and remarkably, we provide phone and chat support, in addition to self-help blogs, articles and Q & A. Eye-Fi's team is big enough to react to the latest innovations in the market, yet small enough to continue its focus on listening and reacting to customers. Eye-Fi

Quote from the Owner / President/ CEO: "The ecosystem of camera partners, online sites, apps and mobile partners built around the Eye-Fi card has irrevocably changed the course of the digital imaging space." - Yuval Koren, CEO Eye-Fi

"An amazing app to go with an amazing card! I love how you can transfer your photos onto the Nexus while out and about, without the need for a Wi-Fi network. When I get home the photos are then downloaded onto my PC and organised into folders according to the date taken (not date transferred - an option in the menu)! How simple!"
