    Startup Stories is a series of short documentaries about Techstars companies hosted exclusively by The Next Web.

    This is the second episode of a series of short docs exploring the key moments, struggles and passions in building a company. We think startup stories are fascinating and want to help share these amazing stories following the adventures entrepreneurs go through on their mission to build a startup.

    In this episode, we follow Mat Ellis and J.R. Storment as they take a side project and build it into a business that help to democratize cloud services for the masses. Cloudability is a company that’s a bit like Mint.com for cloud services (catch TNW’s review of the service here). It helps companies track their cloud spending, and removes the confusion and frustration that multiple, complex billing systems tend to bring.
