Reinventing mobile messaging! Do you know anyone without a mobile phone? Neither do we. That's why back in 2008, the six founders of Sinch set out to reinvent mobile messaging. They realized that SMS presented an incredible opportunity for companies due to its immediate and widespread reach - but it needed a change. They wanted to make mobile messaging easy - to make it a “sinch”, if you will. Since then, Sinch has grown from six guys in a little Stockholm shop window to an international powerhouse serving enterprises across the globe. Sinchs cloud platform now supports messaging, voice, and video, and handles 40 billion API transactions per year.
