Have you met 1oT? Mobile data connectivity for IoT companies.

24 Apr 2018

Last week, Lauri wrote a good piece about keeping things real, because businesses have simple business models at their core. As one of our values, simplicity has led Messente to build a reliable and powerful SMS API and user authentication API for businesses and brands to communicate with their customers globally.

While we pride ourselves in doing global A2P SMS and 2FA very well, one of our sister companies, 1oT, uses a similar methodology of simplicity to do global internet of things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity really well.

A note on keeping things real

17 Apr 2018

Over the years, I've had the good fortune of talking to and doing business with many entrepreneurs and CEOs from a variety of industries. Some are first-time founders of small startups, while others are amazingly experienced serial entrepreneurs. Many of them are extremely successful in what they do.

So naturally, while listening to them talk about their businesses, I've always tried to spot any fundamental takeaways –the small drops of universal business advice distilled from those hundreds of conversations.

And it seems to me that a lot of the most profound business truths seem to point to a direction that I would call, "keeping it real.”
