ABOUT PLIVO

Plivo is a Cloud API Platform and a Global Carrier Services Provider for Voice and SMS. Our mission is to simplify global telecom and enable access to quality cloud communications at an affordable cost.

Plivo is a YC company and backed by some of the best investors in the Valley such as Andreessen Horowitz, Battery Ventures, Qualcomm, SV Angel, YC. Some of which are the same investors who had originally invested in Google, AirBnB, Facebook.

Our story goes back to 2011, when our co-founders, Mike and Venky, accidentally exchanged messages on Github. Each had been seeking a robust communications platform to easily add Voice and SMS capabilities to their web applications. Yet, they couldn't find one that matched their standards, so they decided to build their own; hence Plivo Open Source was born. 

Soon after the project took off and developed into a full-featured cloud platform called Plivo. Since then, we've already helped 1000's of businesses of all sizes build popular Voice and SMS applications including call centers, conferencing, two-factor authentication, mobile notifications, and many more.
