You come across a meaningful problem and you work on the solution. If this problem is also being faced by a greater portion of mankind, your work acquires a greater purpose and the journey just gets more exciting and fun. This has been the underlying motivation for me and the people who have worked at Signeasy for the last 3 years: Solving a real problem!
I still remember the summer of 2009 when the idea struck me while running around for a printer and fax machine on a beach vacation. When we launched Signeasy App as a consumer focused App for signing documents on the go in July 2010, it was the first of a kind to get a glance from people "Wow! Signing documents from your mobile is so simple!"
We firmly believe that paper should not get in the way of anyone's business or personal lives and hence have been at work to deliver the best-in-class mobile signature solution for consumers and businesses of all kinds, from a venture capitalist in Boston to a telecommunications firm in Utah to a medical researcher in South Africa.
Over the last year, we have seen an increasing demand to use Signeasy from small and medium businesses all over the world. Companies are streamlining their operations by exchanging time sensitive documents between office teams and field staff.
In the continuation of our journey to help businesses be more efficient and productive while making the lives of people easier and hassle-free, we wanted to work with a set of mentors, advisors and industry experts who believe in our mission of making the world paperless day by day, business by business and person by person.
Today, we are happy to announce that Signeasy joins the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator Program.
Microsoft Ventures Accelerator is one of the best accelerators worldwide with extensive resources, strong ties to diverse industries and access to a large network of entrepreneurs and mentors. Since the launch of the Accelerator programs two years ago, 114 startups have graduated, and nearly all that sought a subsequent round of funding received it. Considering the nature of our ambitions and the global appeal of Signeasy, it made perfect sense for us to apply to this world class program. We are very excited to be part of the Microsoft Accelerator's 2013 winter batch in Bangalore and we look forward to make it easier, simpler and more convenient for the world to do business.
