It all started with that sentence. But our story is so much more colorful than that. Check out our Mailigen founders' talk to discover why.
Passion for design and technology are the foundations of Mailigen. We wanted to create a platform that would help people connect digitally, but just like any successful entrepreneur, we fell down and rose again many times before Mailigen got to where it is today.
Our lives changed when we found our true mission. We’re here to help companies rise and tell their stories through email. By bringing together exceptional people and technology, we offer an innovative email marketing automation platform to companies around the world and help them achieve their goals.
We learned that mentorship and open communication were crucial to our success. That is why our mentors now work alongside you and guide you on your own path to success. From our story to yours.
The foundation and strength of our technology platform will always be our people and what we believe in - human connections.
As our customer, you are our hero. Moreover, our passion is helping you grow.
