hike is a new cross-platform messaging app that provides a beautiful and intimate experience for the user to message friends and family all over the world.
With hike, messaging has never been simpler. Message friends on hike globally and also message those friends who don't have hike installed. All for free. They're trying to make messaging more personal and social -- a truly magical experience. Their mission is to bring India online through messaging. There are over 1 billion people in this country that will come onto the Internet for the first time in their lives on a mobile device and Hike is strategically poised to enable this experience.
India is now the world's second largest wireless market with over 850M mobile subscribers. The proliferation of technology and the rapid growth of the internet provides a unique opportunity to build services ground up for mobile, especially in a country where the first screen for most is and will be a mobile phone.
They like to push boundaries and challenge the status quo and are building great products for mobile first that will help them enrich and simplify lives.
