Pagevamp: student startup turns Facebook pages into websites

Cofounded by a trio of Penn seniors at last fall’s PennApps hackathon where it won second place, the service uses an organization’s Facebook page to create a website. It turns Facebook into a content management system, so that any update to an organization’s Facebook page gets automatically added to its website. Pagevamp offers a free and premium model.

Pagevamp was originally launched as Snapsite.me after PennApps Fall 2012. Within two days, users created more than 500 sites, said cofounder Vincent Sanchez-Gomez. The team took the product into closed beta after the initial demo to further develop it.

Sanchez-Gomez and his cofounders Atulya Pandey and Fred Wang work out of Sanchez-Gomez’s bedroom, which they’ve converted into an office “in true college startup fashion,” Sanchez-Gomez said. Read about two other Penn undergrad startups here.

The Pagevamp team plans to leave for New York City after graduating this spring because they believe it will be a better place to grow the business, Sanchez-Gomez said. He explained it this way: New York City is booming with its target market — small businesses, clubs and organizations, Penn’s alumni network is strongest there and the team wants a change of setting.
