Drop.io founder and CEO Sam Lessin talks about how his company's file-sharing service takes advantage of the "real-time Web," also known as the "Now Web," in this episode of The Deal's Behind the Money online video show. Drop.io creates online environments, or drops, for people to share videos and other large files privately. Drop.io recently added the ability to share files in real-time and on Thursday, Drop.io added the ability to share presentations. The New York startup has raised $3.9 million from DFJ Gotham Ventures and RRE Ventures.
