An API company 5 years later?

Building an API product is one challenge. Building an API company something completely different. At Nordic APIs on the 25th of October 2016 I shared 7 of my key learnings from 46elks' first 5 years.

The key learnings are:

  1. Building an API company is hard
  2. Developers need time
  3. Metrics is important
  4. Get to know your co-founder
  5. Trust your convictions
  6. Hire your future leaders
  7. Don't lose hope!

Many people use this for sending login codes and other kind of alerts. Simply set "flashsms" to "yes" when sending SMS with the 46elks SMS API to send a flash SMS instead of a regular SMS.
