Takeafile is a peer-to-peer platform for transferring large files at maximum speed in a secure way. It does not require you to install any software: it sends the file directly from the sender to the receiver without using the cloud, without the hassle of uploading and downloading, which can save a lot of time and effort for people such as video editors and graphic designers who work with large files. It’s fast, it’s safe, and there is no limit on file sizes, so there is a good chance it’s a better solution than Dropbox, Google Drive or WeTransfer.

You can browse among a wide range of different spaces, check their availability and reserve them through the app. As opposed to co-working offices, Sheltair offers spaces for as short periods of time as you need them, even if it’s just a few hours. All of the spaces are comfortable and give off a good vibe, but they are different in size, style and function, so you can pick the best one for you.
