We've done it before

Most of the team previously worked together at Nokia. Having contributed to the development and production of more than 1.000.000.000 mobile phones, we know how to make affordable hardware at scale.

All co-founders

After Hossein founded the company we all tagged along for the ride, working for shares instead of a steady paycheck. We truly believe that we together can have positive impact on millions of lives.
