What happens when an entrepreneur scratches his own itch? Emery Wells (follow him on Twitter) started out as a video editor, where he found himself providing services to top ad agencies. He began to realise there was a big untapped opportunity in the cloud. So he launched his own cloud app, and is now proud co-founder and CEO of Frame.io, an online video collaboration app that was recently featured on both TechCrunch and Product Hunt.
