TextMe’s ultimate measure for success is to achieve the highest quality and thus rival and surpass classical communication alternatives.

In order to deliver on this vision, TextMe gathered a group of enthusiastic engineers, with brilliant development skills in web and mobile technologies, joined by highly experienced entrepreneurs with in-depth technical and commercial expertise in mobile and telecommunications and, last but not least, with solid financial skills - thus enabling a sound, though fast-growing, self-funded development of the company.
